Gilbert House Fellowship #19: Genesis 37-42

joseph_soldOUR VIRTUAL house fellowship continues with our study of the book of Genesis. We begin at chapter 37, picking up the story of Joseph, his sale into slavery by his brothers and rise to prominence in Egypt, with an interlude that gives us the story of the foundation of the tribe of Judah.

Joseph statue

Computer recreation of statue found at Avaris — was this Joseph?

Here is the link to the WND article about the possible discovery in Egypt of a statue of  Joseph. Here’s the official website for the film Patterns of Evidence, and here is a link to the Wikipedia article about Amenemhat III, identified by Egyptologist David M. Rohl as the pharaoh during Joseph’s tenure as vizier.

This link takes you to a YouTube video of an excerpt from a lecture by David Rohl about the excavation at the ancient city of Avaris that he believes was the tomb and the statue of Joseph.

And here is a link to the page at Amazon.com for Rohl’s book Pharaohs and Kings: A Biblical Quest.
