Book Summary of The Hand of God by Alistair Begg


The narrative of Joseph’s life found in Genesis 37-50 is a living illustration of Paul’s words in Romans 8:28,And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” 

We meet Joseph when he is seventeen, and Genesis ends when he is 110 at the time of his death. Joseph was used by God in a mighty way. He saved many from death when a horrible famine hit the land. God used him to keep the people of Israel alive. God determined to use Joseph to keep the promise He made to his great-grandfather Abraham in Genesis 12

God did great works through Joseph, but we are naive to think that this came without trouble. His brothers wanted to kill him, then left him in a pit to die instead, then they decided to sell him into slavery to Egypt. In Egypt, he was unjustly charged, thrown in prison, and a man he helped forgot him for many years when he said he would remember Joseph. 

God was working for Joseph’s good so that what others meant for evil God meant for good.
