CONCLUSION 2:  Following Noah’s lineage leeds us to Abraham.

God began with Abraham to establish his family of believers.  
(Abraham descendants became the nation of Israel.  After Jesus, the faith spread to every nation in the world.
Hence, Abraham was considered the father of many nations).

Abraham and Sarah had a son named Isaac who with Rebekah had a son named Jacob.  God renamed Jacob to 
Israel who had 12 sons.  These 12 sons are the origins of the 12 tribes of Israel.

Genesis 37:3  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.

The other eleven brothers were jealous of Joseph.  In the desert, they threw him into a cistern (large pot for water)
and sold him to a caravan of Midianites, who took him to Egypt.

Years later, Joseph was the only person that could interpret the dreams of the King of Egypt.  He told the king that
Egypt will have seven years of abundance followed by seven years of famine.

The King put Joseph in charge of the whole land of Egypt.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
