Joseph & Judah: You Can Change | Genesis 37-50

Joseph & Judah: You Can Change | Genesis 37-50

June 10, 2019

In the story of Joseph it is easy to miss how central Judah is to the story. Judah begins as a complete mess. He suggests Joseph be sold into slavery and is sexually out of control (see 37-38). However, the Messiah is promised to be the Lion of the tribe of Judah (see 49:8-10). How could this be? Come witness the transforming grace of God in the life of Judah and his brothers!

[Mark referenced & quoted from this excellent sermon series on Joseph by Colin Smith.]

28: Stairway to Heaven
