Genesis Lesson 28 Day 3

Genesis 47:28-31

Jacob asks Joseph to bury him with his fathers.

7) The location

Jacob called for his son Joseph and said,

“Please do not bury me in Egypt. . . .Take me out of Egypt, and bury me in the tomb with my ancestors.” Genesis 47:29-30

The address:

Cave of the field at Machpelah
East of Mamre

Information for title search: (I can’t help but think in traditional real estate terms.)

The site Abraham bought with the field from Ephron the Hittite to posses as a burial place (Genesis 50:13).

Genesis 48:21-22 God will be with you and take you back to the land of your fathers. He goes on to give Joseph a specific ridge of land he took from the Amorites.

8) Jacob had faith in God’s promises.

Elohim said “don’t be afraid to go to Egypt, because I will make you a great nation there.” Jacob lived to see that promise fulfilled.

Elohim also said, “I will go with you to Egypt, and I will make sure you come back again. Joseph will close your eyes when you die.”

Jacob called for his son Joseph and made him promise to take his body back to the family burial place.

9) Personal—faith in God’s promises.

I decree and declare God’s promise that as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord!

No weapons formed against us shall prosper.
