The Story of Joseph and Judah

by ,

St. Andrews House 2005

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


The Story of Joseph and Judah takes one of the most beautiful stories in all of Scripture and walks readers through an enhanced method of inductive Bible study. It shows the value of both scientific analysis and literary sensitivity in Bible study and introduces the student to chiastic structure and typological focus. The volume demonstrates that while the Joseph account is a wonderful story of a good and godly man, it is really an account of Judah’s redemption—the son of Jacob who was to receive the scepter in Israel. It demonstrates how the story is a foretelling of the gospel of Jesus Christ. This volume is designed for individual or group study.

In the Logos edition, this valuable volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Scripture citations link directly to English translations, and important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.

Praise for the Print Edition

The Story of Joseph and Judah is a fresh and biblically-sound examination of this passage of Scripture. I enjoyed it tremendously and am glad to recommend it. . . . If you are interested in a guide for personal or group Bible study, you likely won’t do much better than this.

—Tim Challies, pastor, Grace Fellowship Church, Toronto, Ontario

. . . this study helps the student of this wonderful account understand the structure of the Joseph narrative and its key themes, and how these apply to today. Undergirding their study is a rich sense of the typological framework of the Scriptures and the intertextual linkages of the Bible that are so key to its understanding.

Michael A. G. Haykin, professor of church history and biblical spirituality, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

As the small groups pastor of our large church, I am always looking for quality, well written and researched materials to use in Bible study groups. I had the privilege of using The Story of Joseph and Judah in one of my men’s groups this winter. . . . The materials were engaging and artfully presented. Our men looked forward to our study time each week and all came away with a clear understanding of the text. The flow of the chapters lent itself to men who are adept at preparing for each meeting as well as those who took a more relaxed attitude.

—Russell Silverglate, pastor, Hammock Street Church, Boca Raton, FL
