Genesis 39

March 12, 2017

A podcast designed to help you engage with the Bible daily! Each day, we begin with a reading assignment, designed to take no longer than a few minutes. Then a few minutes of thoughts, comments and questions follow, to help you more fully engage with the text, and to consider throughout the day or to help you begin journaling.

It's not the intent to be exhaustive in covering everything, or even to tell you what you should think about a given text. The main idea is to give you a starting point to begin thinking through and engaging with the text yourself, whether you a seasoned Bible student, or this is your first time reading the Bible. The reading selections are kept purposefully small, to make it as easy as possible to develop the discipline of regular Bible reading, and more importantly Bible engaging! It also helps make it possible to catch up if you fall behind a few days.

March 12, 2017: Genesis 39


Joseph, a slave in Egypt, becomes overseer of Potiphar's household. Potiphar's wife attempts to seduce Joseph, but he refuses and runs away because he is unwilling to sin against God. Potiphar's wife lies about who was attempting to seduce who, which results in Joseph being thrown into jail.

Questions to consider:

* What gives Joseph the kind of faith that so few people in his position have? What can this teach us about our own faith?
