After receiving the good news that his son Joseph is alive, Israel moves his family to Egypt. Near the end of his life, Israel adopts and blesses Joseph’s two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh. Israel prophesies their future to them, then prophesies the future of his other 12 sons who are identified as the 12 tribes of Israel.
Israel had spent the last 17 years of his life in Egypt. After prophesying to his sons, Israel’s last living request was that he be buried in the land of his forefathers. Join us as we look at the final chapter of Israel’s life in the message, The Death and Burial of Israel.
In preparation for this study, The Death and Burial of Israel, please read Genesis 49:29 - 50:13.
