Buried // From the Pit to the Palace: The story of Joseph and the Sovereignty of God / 01. Buried // 14 Joseph Dies - Matt Carvel // Genesis 50

01. Buried // 14 Joseph Dies - Matt Carvel // Genesis 50

Matt Carvel looks at the public and private reactions to Jacob's death, as well as the ongoing fragility of the relationship between Joseph and his brothers.

He connects Joseph's statement, "You meant evil against me, but God meant it for good," to the broader theme of God's sovereignty and how it is seen throughout the Bible. While this concept raises questions, it is best understood through stories rather than theories.
