Session 5 - Isaac, Jacob, & Joseph

Want supplemental resources? Here is the FOCUS Salvation History Bible Study and The Real Story by Curtis and Dr. Sri.

Verses: Genesis 25:21-34, 27, 29, 37, 39, 41, 50

Discussion Questions

  1. Jacob’s family experiences the negative effects of not abiding by God’s plan for marriage. How does a neglect of God’s plan for marriage impact people today? How has it impacted you?
  2. In what ways does Jacob grasp? How do you grasp rather than receive what God desires to give you? Or in what ways have you attempted to achieve something good, but used the wrong means to do so?
  3. We see that, when people in salvation history are walking in God’s ways and striving to follow Him, even their failure can be used by God to bring good. What does the story of Joseph have to teach you about trust in God?

“All who believe in Christ should feel, as an integral part of their faith, an apostolic concern to pass on to others its light and joy. This concern must become, as it were, a hunger and thirst to make the Lord known.”

– Pope St. John Paul II
