Tim finishes our series on the Book of Genesis with the story of Joseph. Joseph's life is marked by both faithfulness to God and tremendous suffering and disappointment. But as readers, we're able to see God's mercy in Joseph's suffering. Because of all that happened to Joseph, the chosen family of God was delivered from famine and death. What could God be doing with our suffering?
Daniel continues our race through the Book of Genesis in our Origins series with the story of Jacob. Jacob, despite the fact that he's a liar and thief, is the son chosen by God to carry forward the promise to save the world. By working with Jacob's mess, God is making clear that salvation is not by works, but by grace through faith.
