Item description for Jacob and Egypt: The Sovereignty of God (MacArthur Bible Studies) by John MacArthur...
Overview Best-selling author John MacArthur provides a twelve-week, in-depth, unique look at the Old Testament. Each of the twelve study guides examines the Old Testament in a new light: from historical, character, and thematic angles. Each study is divided into four sections: one lesson sets the stage; five lessons overview the historical period; four lessons focus on a personality; and two lessons look at a special topic or doctrine. The Sovereignty of God shines through the amazing story of Jacob's sons-from Joseph to Rueben to Benjamin. In this study of Joseph's fall to lowly servant and rise to great ruler in the land of Egypt, a fascinating time in history is explored and God's power and dominion over the events that transpired are discovered.
MacArthur Old Testament Study Guide Series, Volume 3
A Study in Genesis 34-50
Nearly half the book of Genesis is devoted to the lives of Jacob and his twelve sons, who were important figures in the history of Israel and in the history of the Christian church. The account of their lives takes the term "dysfunctional family" to a new level. But God used this flawed clan as a beautiful canvas to portray His providence, judgment, and mercy.
"Jacob and Egypt "takes an in-depth look at the historical period beginning when Jacob meets Rachel, continuing through their son Joseph's captivity as an Egyptian slave, and concluding with the dramatic rescue of Jacob's family. Studies include close-ups of Joseph, Pharoah's chief butler, and others, as well as careful considerations of doctrinal themes, such as "The Sovereignty of God" and "A Father's Blessing."
This twelve-volume MacArthur Old Testament Study Guide series provides intriguing twelve-week examinations of the entire Old Testament. Each guide looks at a portion of Scripture from three perspectives--historical studies, character studies, and thematic studies--and incorporates extensive commentary, detailed observations on overriding themes, and probing questions to help you study the Old Testament with guidance from John MacArthur.
