Joseph: Fragile Dreams that changed the world

Many of us live with dreams about things we’d like to achieve, the kind of people we’d like to become and the contribution we’d like to make in the world. But sometimes life takes unexpected turns, and those dreams can feel fragile, distant, or unreachable. This series looks at the life of Joseph in Genesis 37-50 and considers how we can hold firm to the dreams God gives us and trust Him in every season of life.

They continue to live in fear and act deceptively. In the final week of our series, Hannah Elwyn looks at the challenge of forgiveness and the free gift of grace.

Joseph: Fragile Dreams that changed the world: The Transformation of Judah - Genesis 44

Liam Thatcher |

As Joseph tests his brothers, Judah pleads for mercy and offer his own life as a substitute for his brothers. This seems vastly different from the Judah we saw in chapter 37; the brother who masterminded the betrayal of Joseph. Why the change? And how has God softened Judah’s heart so radically?
