Day Ten - 90 Day Bible Reading Challenge - Genesis 37 - 40- The Great Adventure A Journey Through the Bible

Day Ten 
Genesis 37- 40 
By Sarah Christmyer 

Bible Time Period:  Patriarchs 
In the time of the Patriarchs, you called Abraham and promised his children land, a royal kingdom, and worldwide blessing:  Help me to trust in your promises today.

The remainder of Genesis is taken up with the story of Jacob’s son Joseph:  not his firstborn son, but his first son with his favorite wife, Rachel.  This is wonderful storytelling, easy to read and imagine, full of truths about God and the way he relates to his children.  The readings today cover Joseph’s early years and imprisonment in Egypt.

Today’s Reading
Genesis 37 – 40

Today’s Question
The flow of the story is interrupted in Chapter 38 with an incident involving Joseph’s older brother Judah.  Both men will play key roles in the history of Israel, so it is worth taking note.  What is Judah like?  How is he different from Joseph?
