1 TEACHER BIBLE STUDY Once Jacob heard that there was grain in Egypt, he sent his sons to Egypt, except for Benjamin. No one in Canaan knew how long the famine would last, and later clues lead us to believe that it was early into the famine when Jacob sent his sons to Egypt. Joseph recognized his brothers immediately, but they did not recognize him. Through several rounds of tests, Joseph determined that his brothers hearts had changed and that they were sorry for selling him into slavery. Jacob was hesitant to let his sons return to Egypt for more grain, especially with Benjamin in tow. He reluctantly let Benjamin go with Judah s promise of protection for him. Can you imagine Jacob s fear after losing Joseph? Joseph s final test involved Benjamin; it played heavily on his brothers concern for their father and Jacob s desire not to lose another son. Unable to hold his composure any longer, Joseph revealed his identity to his brothers. Focus now on Genesis 45:4-8. Joseph explained why God allowed him to be taken to Egypt. Even though his brothers intended this for his harm, God actually intended this for good. Have you ever struggled to see how bad situations in your life can lead to positive results? Joseph told his brothers they would be set apart as a remnant for a great deliverance. God told Abraham many years before about what would happen. (See Gen. 15:13.) Little did Joseph know that his brothers and their families would be in Egypt for the next 400 years. Joseph was to go to Egypt to prepare a place for his family to survive and become a great nation the nation of Israel. God s plan of redemption through Jesus Christ was sustained through the remnant left in Egypt for 400 years.

Benjamin stayed home. Joseph was in charge of who received food, so the brothers came to him and bowed down. Joseph recognized them, but they did not recognize him. Joseph remembered his dreams where his brothers bowed down to him. Joseph accused them of being spies and put them in prison for three days. On the third day he told them they could all go home except for one. The brothers could prove they were not spies by bringing their brother Benjamin on a return trip. Joseph told his servants to fill each brothers sack and give their money back without telling them. When they discovered the money, they were afraid of being accused of stealing it. They told their father everything, but Jacob would not let the brothers take Benjamin because he was afraid he would never see Benjamin again. However, when all the grain was gone, Jacob asked the sons to return. Judah said they would only go back with Benjamin and promised to return with him. Jacob agreed and told them to take enough money to pay for the grain they received the last visit, too. They also took a special gift for Joseph. When Joseph saw the brothers arrive with Benjamin, he invited them to his home for lunch. They offered to return the money from last time, but a servant assured them they did not owe anything. When Joseph arrived, the brothers gave him his gift and bowed before him. When Joseph saw his younger brother, he left and cried. After eating, Joseph instructed a servant to fill each man s bag with grain and again put their money back. In addition, the servant was to put one of Joseph s silver cups in Benjamin s bag. After the brothers left, Joseph told his servant to pursue them and accuse them of stealing the cup. They denied 2

3 taking it and agreed that if anyone was found with the cup, they would all become Joseph s slaves. When the cup was found in Benjamin s bag, they all returned to Joseph s house. Joseph told the brothers that only Benjamin would be kept as a slave. Judah pleaded with Joseph. He offered to stay instead. Joseph was overcome with emotion and sent away all of his attendants. He told his brothers who he was. They didn t respond because they were scared Joseph would want revenge. Joseph assured them, God sent me ahead of you to establish you as a remnant within the land and to keep you alive by a great deliverance. Therefore it was not you who sent me here, but God. Joseph told his brothers to go home and gather all their family and belongings and come back to Egypt, where they would live free from the famine. Joseph sent supplies for the return trip and gifts for Jacob. When the brothers returned and explained to Jacob what had happened, he was stunned and didn t believe them until he saw all the supplies they came back with. Jacob was happy and excited to go see Joseph. On the way Jacob had a vision, and God spoke to him. I am God, the God of your father. Do not be afraid to go down to Egypt, for I will make you into a great nation there. I will go down with you to Egypt, and I will also bring you back. All of Jacob s family, from sons to great-grandsons, headed to Egypt. Joseph met his father and they hugged and wept. The family was blessed in Egypt, but Jacob got older and died. Joseph s brothers were worried that he would finally have revenge on them, so they told him that Jacob had asked that he forgive his brothers for their sin. Joseph responded, Don t be afraid. Am I in the place of God? You planned evil against me; God planned it for good to bring about the present result the survival of many people. Joseph comforted them and spoke kindly to them. Christ Connection: Joseph recognized that though his brothers intended evil, God planned his circumstances for good to establish a remnant of God s people (Genesis 45:7). Likewise, though those who crucified Jesus intended it for evil, God s plan for the sacrifice of His Son was for the good of all people. Through Jesus death on the cross, God again saved a remnant of people.

Countdown countdown video (Insert provided DVD with lesson videos and worship) Show the countdown video as you clean up table centers, set up classroom chairs for lesson, and set it to end as large group time begins. Introduce the session (1 minute) Leader Welcome back, reporters. It s good to see all you reporters here to help us uncover one more special assignment. Can you all tell me what questions are important to all investigative reporters? (who, what, where, when, why, how) That reminds me of a video clip we have about one of our questions. Watch it with me. Discussion starter video (4 minutes) Why, Why, Why? video (on provided DVD) Show the Why, Why, Why? video. Leader Those were some crazy questions. What are some why questions that you all have? Invite some kids to tell their why questions. Leader We want to ask the question why? all the time. Why do I have to clean my room? Why won t she be my friend anymore? Why did my mom and dad divorce? Why questions can be really hard to find the answers to. Do you think Joseph wanted to ask God why? when his brothers threw him into a pit or when they sold him as a slave? The Bible never says that Joseph asked why? one single time. The Bible does tell us that God was with Joseph. Sometimes we don t get the answer to our why? questions, but we can trust that God has a plan for us, and He can use anything that is bad to become something good for us. Let s start our day by praising God for all He did in the lives of Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph. Sing (4 minutes) Worship Song: Starry Night (on provided DVD) Direct kids to stand and sing Starry Night. Leader In all our investigating about Abraham s son, Isaac, and his grandson, Jacob, I discovered that Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob have a special name that Christians call them. Do any of my investigative reporters know what that special name is? Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are called the patriarchs. Anytime you hear someone talk about the patriarchs, you know they are talking about Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Does anyone remember who we learned about last time? (Joseph) Sometimes Joseph is also called a patriarch. 5

6 Timeline map (2 minutes) Timeline Map small group visual pack (Additional copies provided for Table Time Review) Tip: Point to each section of the timeline on the map to help kids understand how time has progressed from Isaac to Joseph. Leader Our investigative reporter special assignments have helped us learn about how the covenant was reaffirmed to Isaac and Jacob through different ways of God communicating His plan. We saw how even though Jacob sinned, nothing can stop God s plans. Then Jacob returned home and wrestled with God at Peniel. God changed Jacob s name to Israel, a name that would be the name of God s covenant people. And last week we saw how Jacob s son Joseph was sold by his brothers to be a slave, falsely accused, thrown in prison, and forgotten by people. But God was always with Joseph. Do you remember the dreams Joseph had about his brothers and his mom and dad? This week we are going to see just how all those dreams came true. [Get excited as an adult helper brings you this week s special assignment envelope.] Big picture question (1 minute) (11x17 poster provided) manila envelope Write the big picture question on a piece of paper and place it inside the envelope. Enlist a leader ahead of time to bring you the envelope when you mention Joseph s dreams. Leader Here it is. We have been waiting for it. Are you all ready? Do you have your investigative reporter microphones ready? We have another special assignment. I need one of my reporters to open our investigative news assignment. Select a kid to come forward and read the special assignment. Leader Why did God send Joseph to Egypt? I know Joseph s brothers sold him, but God knew exactly what was happening. God was going to use the bad things that Joseph s brothers did to protect and save Joseph s family. Listen to our Bible story to discover the answer to our special assignment. Tell the Bible story (10 minutes) Joseph s Dreams Came True video Bibles, 1 per kid Big Picture Question: Why did God send Joseph to Egypt? 11x17 poster provided Bible Story Picture 11x17 poster provided Tip: The answers given here are summary statements designed to help you transition from question to question after kids give their answers. To manage your time, only call on one or two kids to answer each question. Open your Bible to Genesis 42. Choose to tell the Bible story in your own words, or show the Bible story Joseph s Dreams Came True. Leader Who came to Egypt to buy grain? Good work, reporters! I heard the correct answer. The answer is ten of Joseph s brothers traveled to Egypt. What happened to cause Joseph s brothers to come to Egypt? Yes, their dad Jacob heard there was grain in Egypt that would help them survive the famine. Where did Benjamin stay the first time his brothers traveled to Egypt? You all are right again! Benjamin stayed with his dad because Jacob was afraid something might happen to him. When did Joseph reveal to his brothers who he was? Judah offered to stay in Egypt instead of Benjamin. Joseph saw that his brothers had changed. How did Joseph show he forgave his brothers? He invited them to come live in Egypt so he could make sure they had food during the famine. Why did God send Joseph to Egypt? God sent Joseph to Egypt to establish a remnant. Joseph s dreams had come true. His brothers and family were now bowing to him and following his leadership. Joseph could have decided to be angry with his brothers for the way they treated him. Or Joseph could have used his power to hurt his family. Instead Joseph recognized that God sent Joseph 6

7 to Egypt to establish a remnant. Remnant is the word for a group of people who survive famine or another disaster. God s plan was for Jacob s family to survive the famine so they could grow and become God s chosen people, the Israelites. Through the Israelites, God would send His Son, Jesus. Reporters, do you know why God sent Jesus? God sent Jesus to die on the cross for our sins so that we could ask for and receive God s forgiveness. The Gospel: God s Plan for Me (4 minutes) Refer to the poster: The Gospel: God s Plan for Me hanging in your room. A copy is also provided in the Timeline notebook in your curriculum bucket) Use the guide to explain how to become a Christian to the boys and girls. Key passage (3 minutes) Key Passage Poster: Genesis 28:15 Worship Song: Wherever you Go (on provided DVD) Leader Read God s promise to Jacob, our key passage, with me again. Lead kids to read Genesis 28:15. Leader Some of the promises God made to Jacob were also true for Joseph. God was with Joseph everywhere he went. Whether he was in the pit, a slave in Potiphar s house, in prison, or the leader of Egypt, God was with Joseph. God is also with us. He will watch over us and help us follow Him. Sing Wherever You Go. Prayer (1 minute) Leader What was our special assignment question? Why did God send Joseph to Egypt? OK, investigative reporters, what was the answer? God sent Joseph to Egypt to establish a remnant. When we look at any part of God s story, we can see how He is always in control. Well reporters, that s all for today. Let s pray and then you can go to your small groups to investigate more about Joseph. Lead the boys and girls in prayer. Dismiss to small groups for Table Time The Gospel: God s Plan for Me 11x17 poster provided Ask kids if they have ever heard the word gospel. Clarify that the word gospel means good news. It is the message about Christ, the kingdom of God, and salvation. Use the following guide to share the gospel with kids. God rules. Explain to kids that the Bible tells us God created everything, and He is in charge of everything. Invite a volunteer to read Genesis 1:1 from the Bible. Read Revelation 4:11 or Colossians 1:16-17 aloud and explain what these verses mean. We sinned. Tell kids that since the time of Adam and Eve, everyone has chosen to disobey God. (Romans 3:23) The Bible calls this sin. Because God is holy, God cannot be around sin. Sin separates us from God and deserves God s punishment of death. (Romans 6:23) 7

8 God provided. Choose a child to read John 3:16 aloud. Say that God sent His Son Jesus, the perfect solution to our sin problem, to rescue us from the punishment we deserve. It s something we, as sinners, could never earn on our own. Jesus alone saves us. Read and explain Ephesians 2:8-9. Jesus gives. Share with kids that Jesus lived a perfect life, died on the cross for our sins, and rose again. Because Jesus gave up His life for us, we can be welcomed into God s family for eternity. This is the best gift ever! Read Romans 5:8; 2 Corinthians 5:21; or 1 Peter 3:18. We respond. Tell kids that they can respond to Jesus. Read Romans 10:9-10,13. Review these aspects of our response: Believe in your heart that Jesus alone saves you through what He s already done on the cross. Repent, turning from self and sin to Jesus. Tell God and others that your faith is in Jesus. Offer to talk with any child who is interested in responding to Jesus.
