3 Year Bible Reading: Genesis 40

Our Three Year Bible reading for today is Genesis 40.

General:

  • When chapter 39 ended, Joseph had been sent to prison after being false accused of sexually assaulting his master’s wife
  • God blessed Joseph greatly in prison, however, to the point that he was in charge of many prisoners
    • Two of those prisoners were servants of the Pharaoh, who had offended their boss in some way
      • One was the Pharaoh’s chief baker
      • The other was the Pharaoh’s cupbearer, which involved tasting the Pharaoh’s wine to make sure it was not poisoned
    • It is unclear what these men had done to be imprisoned
    • Since these were high ranking men, Joseph was instructed to take special care of them
  • Both of these men had troubling dreams one night
    • These dreams were disturbing enough that neither of them could forget them the next day
    • Joseph said God could allow him to interpret the dreams; he did not attempt to gain glory for himself in this event
    • The cupbearer happily would be restored to his position in three days
      • All Joseph asked in return for this interpretation was that the cupbearer might mention Joseph’s case to the Pharaoh since he was being wrongfully imprisoned
    • The baker unfortunately would lose his life
  • Both of these interpretations of Joseph came true
    • The cupbearer neglected to mention Joseph
    • Joseph would remain in prison for another 2 years
  • We see God’s wisdom in allowing the cupbearer to forget Joseph
    • If Joseph would have been released at that point, he would have returned to a normal life in Egypt
    • By being in prison two years later, however, Joseph was in the perfect position to be called upon to interpret one of Pharaoh’s strange dreams
      • This led to the great events of chapter 41, which we’ll study on Monday

3 Year Bible Reading: Genesis 39

Our Three Year Bible reading for today is Genesis 39.

General:

  • Chapter 38 left us with Joseph sold into slavery, being taken by caravan to the foreign land of Egypt
  • Once the party arrived, Joseph was sold to Potiphar, who was basically the head of the Secret Service for Pharaoh, the ruler of Egypt
  • Joseph learned a lot about Egyptian culture in life when he worked for Potiphar
    • This helped him later when he was 2nd in command of Egypt
  • Potiphar quickly began to appreciate Joseph’s faithful work and his God-given gifts
    • Joseph was promoted rapidly and ultimately was allowed to live in Potiphar’s house, rather than the slave quarters
    • Potiphar grew to trust Joseph so much that he made him manager of everything he owned
  • As good things happened to Joseph, he knew that it was all God’s doing, not his own
    • Potiphar understood this too
    • This was because Joseph lived his faith very well
  • It’s thought that Joseph served in Potiphar’s house for about 10 years before Potiphar’s wife attempted to seduce him
    • She noted how strong and handsome Joseph was and she desired him
    • As a young man, this would have been a strong temptation
  • Joseph’s answer to Potiphar’s wife involves three things:
    • He would not betray Potiphar’s trust
    • He would not take what did not belong to him (Potiphar’s wife)
    • He would not sin against God who had blessed him
      • The approval of God meant more to Joseph than earthly pleasure
  • Joseph’s refusal unfortunately made him even more attractive to Potiphar’s wife
  • Joseph literally ran away from Potiphar’s wife to escape from sin
    • Potiphar’s wife lied about Joseph and got him fired and put in prison as revenge
      • There is some thought that Potiphar knew his wife was not being truthful
        • Ordinarily a slave would be executed for such a crime
        • Joseph, however, was placed in a part of the prison normally reserved for political prisoners
        • Potiphar could not ignore his wife’s accusations but he could prevent Joseph’s execution
  • God was still with Joseph and blessed him in prison
    • He became the head of all the prisoners there
    • Joseph did not sulk or pout; instead he went to work in a God-pleasing way
