|Bible Question: In Genesis 37-50, in the story of Jospeph I am having trouble understanding what the repeating elements of the story are. can someone help me?|
Bible Answer: Hi holla, Welcome to the forum. Who told you that there are repeating elements in the story?
There are things that I see stressed throughout Genesis, but not necessarily for chapters 37-50 alone. I see the blessing of the Lord on the characters in Genesis.
Genesis 39:23, "The chief jailer did not supervise anything under Joseph's charge because the Lord was with him; and whatever he did, the Lord made [it, NKJ] to prosper."
Genesis 26:28, "And they said, "We see plainly that the Lord has been with you;...29...You are now the blessed of the Lord."
Genesis 49:24, "From the God of your father who helps you, And by the Almighty who blesses you..."
Genesis 48:15, "And he blessed Joseph, and said, "The God before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked, The God who has been my shepherd all my life to this day,..."
Genesis 45:8, "Now, therefore, it was not you who sent me here, but God; and He has made me a father to Pharaoh and lord of all his household and ruler over all the land of Egypt. 9 Hurry, and go up to my father, and say to him, 'Thus says your son Joseph, "God has made me lord of all Egypt; come down to me, do not delay.""
I hope these verses help you.
From the heart, Ray
