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 18, 2017: Genesis 45
Joseph reveals his identity to his brothers, and does not hold their past actions against them. He instead tells them to go back to their father, Jacob, tell him that Joseph is alive, and immigrate to Egypt, because the famine is supposed to last another five years.
Question to consider:
* Why do you think Pharaoh is pleased to hear about Joseph’s family, and is eager to bring them all to Egypt?
