Sunday School Lesson 124 Joseph's Brothers Plan His Death

Lesson: 124

Lesson Name: Joseph's Brothers Plot His Death
Theme: Sin's Foolishness and Carelessness

Reading: Genesis 37:12-36

Memory Verse: Proverbs 11:21
Memory Verse Text: The wicked shall not be unpunished.

Talking Points:

Point 1: Joseph went to the flocks in Shechem in order to do his father's will and to seek the good of his brothers.
Point 2: His brothers mocked him as the "Dreamer" and determined to kill him.  Reuben tried to save Joseph from death, but he was thrown into a pit before he could.  The brothers' intent was likely to let him die there.
Point 3: God sent a band of strangers (Midianites) to serve His purpose and save Joseph's life.  The brothers outsmarted themselves by selling him and thinking that they will never see him again.  "Tune in later for the rest of the story!"  God was not done with those brothers yet.
Point 4: The brothers deceived their father into thinking that a wild beast had devoured Joseph, so Jacob is sure that he will never see his  son again.  Application: No matter how sure you may be that you've got all the angles covered, remember that God is going to bring all to the light.
