Slide4:

Genesis chapter 42 v 1 - 17 NIV When Jacob learned that there was grain in Egypt, he said to his sons, “Why do you just keep looking at each other?” He continued, “I have heard that there is grain in Egypt. Go down there and buy some for us, so that we may live and not die”. The ten of Joseph’s brothers went down to buy grain from Egpyt. But Jacob did not send Benjamin, Joseph’s brother with the others, because he was afraid that harm might come to him. So Israel’s sons were among those who went to buy grain, for the famine was in the land of Canaan also. .

Slide5:

Genesis chapter 42 v 1 - 17 NIV Now Joseph was the governor of the land, the one who sold grain to all its people. So when Joseph’s brothers arrived, they bowed down to him with their faces to the ground. As soon as Joseph saw his brothers, he recognised them, but he pretended to be a stranger and spoke harshly to them. “Where do you come from?” he asked. “From the land of Canaan” they replied, “to buy food”. Although Joseph recognised his brothers, they did not recognise him. Then he remembered his dreams about them and said to them “You are spies! You have come to see where our land is unprotected” .

Slide6:

Genesis chapter 42 v 1 - 17 NIV “No my Lord”, they answered. “Your servants have come to buy food. We are all sons of one man. Your servants are honest men, not spies.” “No!” he said to them. “You have come to see where our land is unprotected”. But they replied, “Your servants were twelve brothers, the son of one man, who lives in the land of Canaan. The youngest is now with our father, and one is no more.” Joseph said to them, “It is just as I told you: You are spies! And this is how you will be tested:

Slide7:

Genesis chapter 42 v 1 - 17 NIV “As surely as Pharaoh lives, you will not leave this place unless your youngest brother comes here. Send one of your number to get your brother; the rest of you will be kept in prison, so that your words may be tested to see if you are telling the truth. If you are not, then as surely as Pharaoh lives, you are spies!” And he put them in custody for three days.

Slide8:

Genesis chapter 42 v 21 -28 NIV They said to one another, “Surely we are being punished because of our brother. We saw how distressed he was when he pleaded with us for his life, but we would not listen: that’s why this distress has come upon us.” Reuben replied, “Did I not tell you not to sin against the boy? But you would not listen! Now we must give an accounting for his blood”. They did not realise that Joseph could understand them, since he was using an interpreter.

Slide9:

Genesis chapter 42 v 21 -28 NIV He turned away from them and began to weep, but then turned back and spoke to them again. He had Simeon taken from them and bound before their eyes. Joseph gave orders to fill their bags with grain, to put each man’s silver back in his sack, and to give them provisions for their journey. After this was done for them, they loaded their grain on their donkeys and left. At the place where they stopped for the night one of them opened his sack to get feed for his donkey, and he saw his silver in the mouth of his sack.

Slide10:

Genesis chapter 42 v 21 -28 NIV “My silver has been returned,” he said to his brothers. “Here it is in my sack.” Their hearts sank and they turned to each other trembling and said, “What is this that God has done to us?”.

Slide11:

Genesis chapter 43 v 20 - 23 NIV “Please, sir”, they said, “we came down here the first time to buy food. But at the place where we stopped for the night we opened our sacks and each of us found his silver – the exact weight – in the mouth of his sack. So we have brought it back with us. We have also brought additional silver with us to buy food. We don’t know who put our silver in our sacks”. “It’s all right”, he said. Don’t be afraid. Your God, the God of your father, has given you treasure in your sacks; I received your silver.” Then he brought Simeon out to them.

Slide12:

Genesis chapter 43 v 29 -31 NIV As he looked about and saw his brother Benjamin, his own mother’s son, he asked, “Is this your youngest brother, the one you told me about? And he said, “God be gracious to you, my son.” Deeply moved at the sight of his brother, Joseph hurried out and looked for a place to weep. He went into his private room and wept there. After he had washed his face, he came out and , controlling himself, said, “Serve the food”.

Slide13:

Genesis chapter 43 v 33 – 34 and 44 v 1 -2 NIV The men had been seated before him in the order of their ages, from the firstborn to the youngest; and they looked at each other in astonishment. When portions were served to them from Joseph’s table, Benjamin’s portion was five times as much as anyone else’s. So they feasted and drank freely with him. 44 Now Joseph gave these instructions to the steward of his house: “Fill the men’s sacks with as much food as they can carry, and put each man’s silver in the mouth of his sack. Then put my cup, the silver one, in the mouth of the youngest one’s sack”…

Slide14:

Genesis chapter 44 v 33 – 34 and 45 v 1 - 2 NIV “Now then, please let your servant remain here as my lord’s slave in place of the boy, and let the boy return to his brothers. How can I go back to my father if the boy is not with me? No! Do not let me see the misery that would come upon my father.” 45 Then Joseph could no longer control himself before all his attendants, and he cried out, “Make everyone leave my presence!” So there was no-one with Joseph when he made himself known to his brothers. And he wept so loudly that the Egyptians heard him and Pharaoh’s household heard about it.

Slide15:

Genesis chapter 45 v 3 – 8 NIV “Joseph said to his brothers, “I am Joseph! Is my father still living?” But his brothers were not able to answer him, because they were terrified at his presence. Then Joseph said to his brothers, “Come close to me.” When they had done so, he said, “I am your brother Joseph, the one you sold into Egypt! And now, do not be distressed and do not be angry with yourselves for selling me here, because it was to save lives that God sent me ahead of you. 8 So then, it was not you who sent me here, but God. He made me father to Pharaoh, lord of his entire household and ruler of all Egypt.

Slide16:

Genesis chapter 45 v 12 - 15 NIV “You can see for yourselves, and so can my brother Benjamin, that it is really I who am speaking to you. Tell my father about all the honour accorded me in Egypt and about everything you have seen. And bring my father down here quickly.” Then he threw his arms around his brother Benjamin and wept and Benjamin embraced him, weeping. And he kissed all his brothers and wept over them. Afterwards his brothers talked with him.

Slide17:

Romans chapter 8 v 28 NIV And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Genesis chapter 41 v 52 The second son he named Ephraim and said, “It is because God has made me fruitful in the land of my suffering”.
