This reading guide was created back in the summer of 2018 when we preached through the lives of Jacob and Joseph (Genesis 25-50). The stories found in these chapters are full of gospel implications, history, theology, and insights into our own lives. This guide is designed to give you a simple plan for reading, studying, and reflecting on the Scriptures.
Each week there will be three touch points before the leading up to Sunday’s sermon. What day you do each touch point doesn’t matter, as long as you focus on the assigned chapter for that week. Here’s the flow for each week:
- Day 1: Read the chapter.
- Day 2: Read the chapter and answer a few questions designed to help dig deeper in the text.
- Day 3: Read the chapter and answer a few questions designed to help you reflect and apply what you are learning personally.
- Following Sunday: Come to gathered worship on Sunday and hear the pastors teach on the chapter you have studied throughout the week.
We pray that this guide would help you meditate on the word of God and that the story of Jacob and Joseph would be read and seen in a fresh way.
