Abraham, Jacob, and Joseph. As the main characters in the Book of Genesis, many of us have been hearing stories about these men since we were children. The problem is, such stories are usually broken up into isolated fragments: Abraham on Mount Moriah, Jacob wrestling with God, Joseph and his multi-colored coat. When we dig deeper, we see that these men are part of a single, seamless story—one that stretches from the first page of the Bible to the last.
Join authors Matt Carter and Halim Suh as they examine Genesis 12-50 and explore how the first book of the Bible foreshadows the gospel of Jesus Christ—the good news of salvation and redemption that we find only in relationship with Him.
When we read about Abraham, Jacob, and Joseph—the family of promise— we read about salvation by faith. We begin to understand that God orchestrates everything, including suffering and evil, in order to redeem the consequences of the fall and ultimately restore us to Him.
