Discussion for Genesis 41

  • Hajara
    The life of Joseph shows that humility and trust in God is the only way to success, also hard work, Joseph was all over Egypt, his position did not change anything
  • Rosetta Johnson
    It is my belief that God always send a warning before destruction, however it is up to us as believers to see the signs and obey them. Genesis 41 is a powerful illustration of how one believe in the power of God even during times of sorrow and pain. Joseph had endured many hardships at an early age, however he never stop depending on the Lord. He knew he would deliver on time. This nourishment!!
  • Bruce Malouf
    Is this the first documented evidence of any human being having a dream or night mare?
    Can this dream remanifest itself millennia into the future?
    If the numbering of Chapter 41 is NOT a pure accident, then is there any possibility of determining when the dream may reoccur? Does the total number of 14 years give an indication? For example 41 - 14 = 27 (3 x 3 x 3) or perhaps the THIRD millennium?

    Pharoah recognized that Joseph had the spirit of God on him and that it wasn't his own abilities. All the glory really belonged to God.
