Jesse Tree - Day 7 - Joseph in Egypt

Joseph and the colorful coat. A story the children know well. We've even watched the DVD production of Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat. So, today's readings didn't need a lot of explanation: Genesis 37:3-5, 8a, 18-10, 23, 28; 41:41; 42-6; 45:4-5.

What was interesting was the New Testament reading: Matthew 2:13-15 - Joseph being called to take his young family out of Bethlehem and to Egypt in order to save Jesus.

So, the first Joseph was sent to Egypt and ultimately saved many because of it. The second Joseph was sent to Egypt and ultimately saved many because of it. So, if your name is Joseph and God tells you to go to Egypt - you better listen!Posted by Picasa
