TThe Kingdom of God re-established in a family
Genesis chapters
25 to 50

Genesis goes on to records the lives of Isaac, Jacob, Joseph and their families and how God was working out his gracious plans despite family feuds and treachery. The book ends with  Joseph the favourite son of Jacob. After being sold as a slave by his envious brothers, he became Governor of Egypt and is placed by God in a position to become the saviour to his family when drought and famine came to Canaan. The family of Jacob (whom God had renamed Israel) remains in Egypt.  

Genesis also records the prophetic blessing of Jacob to his 12 sons (whose descendants become the 12 tribes of Israel). Regarding the coming CHAMPION Jacob says to his son Judah “The sceptre will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until he comes to whom it belongs and the obedience of the nations is his” Genesis chapter 49 verse 10.
The CHAMPION is to come from the tribe of Judah and to have the office of a King.

The book of Genesis ends with this very important lesson about the power and character of God. God will bring good out of evil. In the words of Joseph referring to when his brothers sold him as a slave You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives”. Genesis 50: 20.
