The story of Joseph concludes the ancestral narratives found in Genesis, fraught with family conflict. In this latest volume in the Covenant Bible Studies series from Brethren Press, Old Testament scholar and former Bethany Seminary president Eugene F. Roop examines the conflicts that include parental favoritism, sibling hatred, and the question of generational sin. Studying this rich story opens up readers to constructive ways to respond to the conflicts experienced in families and congregations today. Small groups that use this resource will discover, as Joseph did, that God is working through, alongside, and beyond the choices we make, and will be invited into God’s new world of shalom and well-being.
