All of Scripture declares that God’s hand is active in shaping our every affair, from our deepest trials to our loftiest triumphs. Few stories declare this theme more powerfully than the dramatic account of Joseph, son of Jacob. Through this seminal tale of jealousy, betrayal, faithfulness, and astonishing forgiveness, the Bible invites us to rejoice in God’s divine sovereignty and providential care for those whom He loves.
In volume two of this series, Alistair Begg examines Joseph’s journey from the heights of worldly influence to the lasting legacy of his final days. His could have been a story rife with bitterness and vengeance. Instead, being grounded in faith, Joseph trusted in God’s providence and promises, regardless of his circumstances. Like Christ Himself, Joseph’s view of the world was framed by God’s divine purpose, enabling him to forgive genuinely, live correctly, and die without fear. Will we follow his example?
