Joseph’s Dreams Came True

Key Passage: Genesis 28:15 “Look, I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go.”

Big Picture Question: Why did God send Joseph to Egypt? God sent Joseph to Egypt to save his family.

Christ Connection: Joseph recognized that though his brothers intended evil, God planned his circumstances for good—to establish a remnant of God’s people (Genesis 45:7). Likewise, though those who crucified Jesus intended it for evil, God’s plan for the sacrifice of His Son was for the good of all people. Through Jesus’ death on the cross, God again saved a remnant of people.

Dear Parent(s) or Guardian(s),

This week The Gospel Project for Kids continued the two-part story looking at a Joseph, a son of David. Joseph had come to a position of power in Egypt, and there was a famine throughout the world. Joseph had plenty of food, and people came to him for it. When Joseph’s brothers arrived for food, Joseph recognized them and tested them to see if their hearts had changed.

Joseph determined that God had used the evil intent of his brothers to bring about His glory and Joseph’s good. Joseph revealed his identity to his brothers, and Jacob and his family moved from Israel to Egypt.

Family Activity: Talk about what it must have been like for Jacob’s family to have no food. Gather food to donate to a food pantry, or volunteer at a soup kitchen as a family.
