Tina Sala Rel 1310­01 Reading Question for 9/7/16 — Jacob and Joseph 1. One of the first instances in Jacob’s narrative that might make someone view him as a  “tricky” person was when he made Esau sell him his birthright in exchange for a meal.  Jacob also later tricks his own dying father into thinking that he is his older brother and  blesses him. This exemplifies Jacob’s thirst for power over his brother and within his  household. When I read Genesis, I came to the same conclusion about Jacob and was  actually quite confused as to why God would choose to establish a relationship with him  even though he wasn’t necessarily a “righteous” person. However, Jacob was pictured in  a more positive light when he decided to work as hard as he could to marry Rachel and  raise a family with her. This part of the narrative shows that Jacob is capable of being  compassionate and devoted to another human being.  2. Because of Joseph’s pretentious behavior toward his brothers, they decide to kidnap him  and sell him to slavery, making it look like he was killed by an animal. However, Joseph  is later sold to a man in Egypt and establishes a successful livelihood there. He becomes  the Pharaoh’s “second in command” and is chosen to oversee all aspects of Egypt. This  includes being in charge of distributing food rations in Egypt during a large famine. This  famine eventually stretches to Canaan and forces Joseph’s family to go to Egypt, where  Joseph forgives his brothers for their wrongdoings and offers them a place to live. This  sequence of events exemplifies God’s plans for Joseph and his family, as well as his  unwavering faithfulness and divinity. Had Joseph not been sold to an Egyptian and come  into contact with the Pharaoh, both the lands of Egypt and Canaan would have been  overrun with hunger and his family would have been out of luck.
