Three Important Facts
This story teaches us three important facts.
- God’s plan does not always follow what we think or expect. Isaac expected that God’s plan would continue through Esau his firstborn. That was the custom of Isaac’s people. But God chose Jacob instead.
- God uses even trouble and difficulty to bring good. When Joseph’s brothers sold him as a slave, God was working in this trouble and difficulty. In the end Joseph saw that God had meant everything for good.
- God can deliver us from any kind of temptation1. Joseph refused to do what Potiphar’s wife wanted, and God gave him victory.
In the next course you will study from the second book of the Taurat and the Zabur. You will learn about the Prophets Moses, Aaron and David.
