2 2 Genesis 37: Jacob lived in the land where his father had stayed, the land of Canaan. 2 This is the account of Jacob. Joseph, a young man of seventeen, was tending the flocks with his brothers, the sons of Bilhah and the sons of Zilpah, his father's wives, and he brought their father a bad report about them.

3 3 Genesis 37: Now Israel loved Joseph more than any of his other sons, because he had been born to him in his old age; and he made a richly ornamented robe for him. 4 When his brothers saw that their father loved him more than any of them, they hated him and could not speak a kind word to him.

4 4 Genesis 37: Joseph had a dream, and when he told it to his brothers, they hated him all the more. 6 He said to them, "Listen to this dream I had: 7 We were binding sheaves of grain out in the field when suddenly my sheaf rose and stood upright, while your sheaves gathered around mine and bowed down to it."

5 5 Genesis 37:8 8 His brothers said to him, "Do you intend to reign over us? Will you actually rule us?" And they hated him all the more because of his dream and what he had said.

6 6 Genesis 37:9 9 Then he had another dream, and he told it to his brothers. "Listen," he said, "I had another dream, and this time the sun and moon and eleven stars were bowing down to me.

7 7 Genesis 37:10 10 When he told his father as well as his brothers, his father rebuked him and said, "What is this dream you had? Will your mother and I and your brothers actually come and bow down to the ground before you?"

8 8 1. Why does Genesis 37:2 state: This is the account of Jacob when the Bible begins to focus its attention on Joseph?

11 11 1. Why does Genesis 37:2 state: This is the account of Jacob when the Bible begins to focus its attention on Joseph? God is going to present to us the truth about Jacob and his family. God doesnt paint Jacob as being the perfect role model of a wonderful, loving, perfect, godly father. Jacob in many ways was a complete failure. The same is true about his family. It too is a complete failure. God reveals His unconditional love for this family in saving them out of their shameful failure, disobedience, and hopelessness.
