Contemplations on Joseph
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. (Colossians 3:16)
With God’s grace, we introduce studies in the Bible, the Old and New Testament. These studies were first presented as sermons and topics for discussion during spiritual days. These are mostly contemplations whereby the word of the Bible can be applied to our daily lives.
Israel had twelve sons who formed the twelve tribes of Israel with Joseph being the eleventh son, born of Rachel. Joseph which means ‘God Increase’, was her firstborn and her second child was named Benjamin, which means ‘son of strength.’ Jacob was married to both Rachel and Leah who were sisters and he had children by both of them. He also had children by their servants Bilhah and Zilpah. Joseph’s story beings in Genesis chapter 37.
