圣经问答:约瑟(五)

Joseph07 (150 x 94)创世记45-50章
约瑟是圣经里的重要人物之一。也许以下的问题会让您更深地认识他。

一. 请背诵创世记四十五章5节及7节。

和合本:45:5:现在,不要因为把我卖到这里自忧自恨,这是神差我在你们以先来,为要保全生命。… 7:神差我在你们以先来,为要给你们存留余种在世上,又要大施拯救,保全你们的生命。

新译本:现在你们不要因为把我卖到这里来,而自忧自责。这原是上帝差派我在你们以先来这里,为要保全性命。… 7 上帝差派我在你们以先来这里,为要给你们在地上留下余种,大大施行拯救,保全你们的性命。

普通话本:你们不要为这件事忧虑和自责。是上帝差遣我先到这里来,为的是拯救大家的性。 …7 上帝差我先到这里来,就是要保全大地上一些人的性命,用这种奇异的方法拯救你们。

二. 请说明约瑟对以下的人和事情的看法和解释:

1)兄弟们出卖约瑟
2)神
3)便雅悯
4)饥荒

三. 我们认为约瑟赠送礼品给父亲是理所当然地,但是,约瑟为什么送礼物给兄弟们(45:21-24)?

四. 约瑟为什么告诉兄弟们说:“你们在路上不要争吵”(45:24)?

五. 雅各听到好消息说,“约瑟还活着,并他是埃及的首相!”请描述雅各对此信息的反应。你认为兄弟们有没有把所有的实情告诉老父亲,在父亲面前认罪悔改?(参看49:23-24; 50:16-17。)

六. 雅各素来做什么事情?(参看创世记31:54; 32:9-12; 33:20; 35:7; 35:14; 46:1; 47:31。) 为什么?

七. 神为什么对以色列(雅各)说话(46:2-4)?神向以色列说了什么话?神是否很久没有与雅各说话?(好象是没有,但是我们不知道。)神为什么在这时候要向雅各说话?神为什么早没有告诉雅各有关约瑟的真情?为什么没有让雅各知道他的爱子还活着?

八. 请列下雅各(以色列)十二个儿子的名字(46:8-25)。

九. 总共,雅各、约瑟全家几口(46:26-27)?在新约的使徒行传7:14,司提反说总共有75位;差别在哪里?

十. 请用自己的想象力述说约瑟和他父亲雅各(以色列)见面的情况(46:28-30)。

十一. 指出当时埃及人的文化特点(46:31-34)。

十二. 雅各为什么给法老王祝福,而不是法老王给雅各赐福(47:7-10)?当时,雅各几岁?

十三. 创世记47:21:不同译本有不同的翻译,如下:“至于人民,约瑟把他们迁到城市里去”(“约瑟把他们迁到城市里去” 有古卷及古译本作:“使他们成了奴仆”)。请说明,约瑟怎样才能使得埃及百姓成为法老王的奴仆。

十四. 哪些人不必把他们的地卖给法老王?为什么?

十五. 埃及老百姓要给法老王纳多少税(47:24)?

十六. 迁到埃及后,以色列人做了些什么(47:27)?

十七. 雅各叫约瑟答应他什么事情(47:28-31; 49:29-32)?此要求表明以色列(雅各)明白天上的神赐给他什么?雅各逝世时岁数有多大?

十八. 雅各告诉约瑟什么重要的事情(48:1-7)?约瑟的两个儿子被改为是谁的儿子?说明以色列如何祝福了这两个孩子。在以后的历史,这个祝福有没有变为事实?

十九. 创世记49章:谈谈有关雅各给十二个儿子的祝福。哪些祝福比较好听?哪些祝福不好听?为什么会有这么大的区别?

以下的“祝福”都是什么意思?请清楚地指出每一个“祝福” 1)是怎样说的;2)是向哪个儿子说的;3)是什么事情或什么意思。(请注意所说的“祝福”并不一定是“福”。)

3节: 因为你上了你父亲的床,污秽了我的…

6节: 因为他们趁怒杀害人命…

10节: 权杖必不离开犹大,王圭必不离他两脚之间,直到细罗(“细罗”古译本作“属他的那位”)来到,万族都要臣服他

23节: 弓箭手把他苦害,向他射箭敌对他…

24节: 但他的弓依然坚硬,他的手臂仍旧敏捷…

二十. 创世记50章:述说以色列逝世并埋葬的情况。

二十一. 您认为创世记50:16-17是真实的呢?还是兄弟们因为害怕约瑟会报仇,所以他们就捏造这些话?兄弟们害怕到什么程度(18)?请背诵创世记50:19-21:约瑟对他们说:“你们不要害怕,我怎能代替上帝呢?20从前你们有意要害我,但上帝有美好的意思在其中,为要成就今日的光景,使许多人的性命得以保全。21现在你们不要害怕,我必供养你们和你们的孩子”。于是约瑟用仁慈的话安慰他们。

二十二. 约瑟告诉他的兄弟们什么事情(50:24-25)?约瑟几岁才死?___。

二十三. 当学习约瑟的生平时,你做自己的生命有没有因此而改变?请指出几样告知大家!

Joseph (5)
Genesis 45-50

1. Memorize Genesis 45:5, 7). [Three Chinese versions are quoted in the text above.]

The English NIV says: 5 And now, do not be distressed and do not be angry with yourselves for selling me here, because it was to save lives that God sent me ahead of you. …7 But God sent me ahead of you to preserve for you a remnant on earth and to save your lives by a great deliverance.

2.What was Joseph’s attitude toward the following:

1) His brother’s selling him
2) God
3) Benjamin
4) Famine

3. It was normal for Joseph to send gifts to his father, but why did he give gifts to his brothers?

4. Why did Joseph tell his brothers “Don’t quarrel on the way” (45:24)?

5. Jacob was told the good news that Jacob was still alive and was ruler of Egypt. What was Jacob’s reaction? Do you think the brothers told their father the whole story and expressed repentance? (See Genesis 49:23-24; 50:16-17).

6. What did Jacob often do? (See Genesis 31:54; 32:9-12; 33:20; 35:7, 17; 46:1.) Why?

7. Why did God speak to Israel (Jacob) (Genesis 46:2-4)? What did God tell him? Had it been a long time since God had spoken to Jacob? (It seems so, but we do not know for sure.) Why did God speak to Jacob at this time? Why did God not tell Jacob early on about Joseph’s situation and let him know that his beloved son was still alive?

8. List the twelve sons of Jacob (46:8-25).

9. All together, how many people were in the family of Jacob and Joseph (46:26-27)? In Acts 7:14, Stephen said there were seventy-five people; why the difference?

10. Envision and then describe the meeting between Joseph and his father Jacob (Israel) (46:28-30).

11. What was a culturally distinctive about the Egyptians (46:31-34)?

12. Why did Jacob bless Pharaoh instead of Pharaoh blessing Jacob (47:7-10)? How old was Jacob at this time?

13. Genesis 47:21: Different translations render this differently, such as: Joseph reduced the people to servitude and Joseph moved the people into cities. Explain how Joseph turned the people into Pharaoh’s servants.

14. What group of people did not need to sell their land to Pharaoh? Why?

15. How much tax did the people pay?

16. What did the Israelites do after they moved to Egypt(47:27)?

17. What did Jacob make Joseph promise him (47:28-31; 49:29-32)? This request indicated that Israel (Jacob) knew that God had given him what? How old was Jacob when he died?

18. What important thing did Jacob tell Joseph (48:1-7)? Joseph’s two sons became whose? How did Israel bless these two children?

19. Genesis 49: Discuss the blessings Jacob gave his sons. Which blessings sound better/worse? Why so much difference?

Explain the meaning of the “blessings” in verses 3, 6, 10, 23 and 24. (Note that “blessing” does not always mean something good!)

20. Genesis 50: Describe the death and burial of Israel.

21. Are the words in Genesis 50:16-17 true or a fabrication due to the brothers’ fear? How fearful were they (v. 18)? Memorize Genesis 50:16-17.

22. What did Joseph tell his brothers (Genesis 50:24-25)? How old was Joseph when he died?

23. Has your life changed any while studying about Joseph? Give examples.
