BSF Lesson 31 Genesis, Day 5

11. On his deathbed, Joseph wanted his brothers to know that God himself would come to their aid and provide for them. God would also take them out of Egypt and back to the land God promised to all of the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

12. a. Joseph requested that his bones be buried along with his ancestors. Hebrews 11:22 says returning his bones would be a part of their family returning to the promised land.

b. Exodus 13:19 Moses took the bones of Joseph with him because Joseph had made the Israelites swear an oath. He had said, “God will surely come to your aid, and then you must carry my bones up with you from this place.”
