The Story of the Patriarchs - Genesis 12-50 The Call of Abraham Abraham in Egypt Abram Rescues Lot God's Covenant with Abram Hagar and Ishmael The Destruction
of Sodom and Gomorrah Abraham and Abimelech The Covenant of Circumcision But God said to him, “Do not be so distressed about the boy and your slave woman. Listen to whatever Sarah tells you, because it is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned. I will make the son of the slave into a nation also, because he is your offspring.” (Genesis 21:12-13) Birth of Isaac and Ishmael Sent Away Then the Lord rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah—from the Lord out of the heavens. Thus he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, destroying all those living in the cities—and also the vegetation in the land. But Lot’s wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt. (Genesis 19:24-26) Abraham's Test Click the following link then scroll to the film trailer. http://www.crown.org/godprovides/pub/AbrahamandIsaac.aspx The angel of the Lord called to Abraham from heaven a second time and said, “I swear by myself, declares the Lord, that because you have done this and have not withheld your son, your only son, I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will take possession of the cities of their enemies, and through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed me.” Genesis 22:15-18 Jacob and His Twelve Sons Genesis 25:19-36:43 Esau and Jacob Isaac and Abimelech Jacob's Deceit Jacob Flees to Haran Jacob, Leah, and Rachel Jacob and Laban The Rape of Dinah Jacob Returns to Bethel Joseph - Genesis 37 - 50 The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.
“I will make you into a great nation,
and I will bless you;
I will make your name great,
and you will be a blessing.
I will bless those who bless you,
and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
will be blessed through you.” Genesis 12:1-3 Moses - Exodus, Leviticus,
Numbers, and Deuteronomy Joseph and His Brothers Judah and Tamar Joseph and Potiphar's Wife Joseph's Interpretation
of Dreams Joseph's Brothers in Egypt The Second Journey to Egypt Judah's Plea Joseph and His Brothers Jacob in Egypt Joseph's Reassurance Now Israel loved Joseph more than any of his other sons, because he had been born to him in his old age; and he made an ornate[a] robe for him. When his brothers saw that their father loved him more than any of them, they hated him and could not speak a kind word to him. Genesis 37:3-4 Joseph had a dream, and when he told it to his brothers, they hated him all the more.
He said to them, “Listen to this dream I had:
We were binding sheaves of grain out in the field when suddenly my sheaf rose and stood upright, while your sheaves gathered around mine and bowed down to it.”
His brothers said to him, “Do you intend to reign over us? Will you actually rule us?” And they hated him all the more because of his dream and what he had said.
Then he had another dream, and he told it to his brothers. “Listen,” he said, “I had another dream, and this time the sun and moon and eleven stars were bowing down to me.”
When he told his father as well as his brothers, his father rebuked him and said, “What is this dream you had? Will your mother and I and your brothers actually come and bow down to the ground before you?” 11 His brothers were jealous of him, but his father kept the matter in mind. Genesis 37:5-11 When his master heard the story his wife told him, saying, “This is how your slave treated me,” he burned with anger. Joseph’s master took him and put him in prison, the place where the king’s prisoners were confined. Genesis 39:19-20 Patriarch - the individuals who stand at the fountainhead of our faith: Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob Theological Significance: Sin is rebellion against God The Major Theological Concepts of Genesis 12-50:
Election -
Promise -
Covenant - God brought Israel into existence for a purpose: to serve as his instrument of salvation for the world. The promises of God are sure and ultimate fulfillment must await a later generation. The covenant relationship between God and Abraham establishes a theological framework for redemptive relationships throughtout the Bible and in Christian theology.

Genesis 35:1-40:38 Then a new king, to whom Joseph meant nothing, came to power in Egypt. “Look,” he said to his people, “the Israelites have become far too numerous for us. Come, we must deal shrewdly with them or they will become even more numerous and, if war breaks out, will join our enemies, fight against us and leave the country.” Exodus 1:8-10 When the child grew older, she took him to Pharaoh’s daughter and he became her son. She named him Moses, saying, “I drew him out of the water.” Exodus 2:10 There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. So Moses thought, “I will go over and see this strange sight—why the bush does not burn up.”
When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, “Moses! Moses!”
And Moses said, “Here I am.” Genesis 3:2-4 The Miraculous Escape - Exodus Theological Significance:
Presence of God Then the Lord said to Moses, “Go down, because your people, whom you brought up out of Egypt, have become corrupt. They have been quick to turn away from what I commanded them and have made themselves an idol cast in the shape of a calf. They have bowed down to it and sacrificed to it and have said, ‘These are your gods, Israel, who brought you up out of Egypt.’ Exodus 32:7-8 Themes of Leviticus:
Holiness General Theme in Numbers:
Preparation to leave Mount Sinai and to enter Canaan. Outline of the Book of Numbers:
At Sinai (1:1-10:10)
From Sinai to Edom (10:11-20:21)
From Edom to Jordan (20:22-36:13) But the men who had gone up with him said, “We can’t attack those people; they are stronger than we are.” Numbers 13:31 The Lord replied, “I have forgiven them, as you asked. Nevertheless, as surely as I live and as surely as the glory of the Lord fills the whole earth, not one of those who saw my glory and the signs I performed in Egypt and in the wilderness but who disobeyed me and tested me ten times— not one of them will ever see the land I promised on oath to their ancestors. No one who has treated me with contempt will ever see it. Numbers 14:20-23 So the Lord said to Moses, “Take Joshua son of Nun, a man in whom is the spirit of leadership, and lay your hand on him. Have him stand before Eleazar the priest and the entire assembly and commission him in their presence. Give him some of your authority so the whole Israelite community will obey him. He is to stand before Eleazar the priest, who will obtain decisions for him by inquiring of the Urim before the Lord. At his command he and the entire community of the Israelites will go out, and at his command they will come in.” Numbers 27:18-21
