Archived Teaching with the Bible Topics  

Being part of a family requires love, courage, and oftentimes forgiveness. In this section, we're examining the importance of family through the life story of Joseph. We’ll look at Joseph’s childhood, his brothers’ plot to get rid of him, how his life unfolds from one hardship-adventure to the next over many years, and the ultimate point of forgiveness between Joseph and his brothers when they all realize God’s ever-present care and protection. The completeness of Joseph’s forgiveness makes him a role model for all of us.
