Solid Rock Kids: Joseph and His Brothers


In the Books of the Bible curriculum, we’ll spend the first few weeks learning about Covenant History. Each week, we’ll post a short overview of the lesson and memory verse with questions for families to discuss. This week’s lesson focuses on Joseph and his brothers.

Bible Passage to reread: Genesis 37; 39–45 

Memory Verse to reinforce: Matthew 6:14a (NIrV): “Forgive other people when they sin against you.”

Key Ideas: God forgives me and I can forgive others. 

Questions to ask your kids:

What does forgiveness mean? 

Why is forgiveness important? 

What might have happened if Joseph didn’t forgive his brothers? 

Is there anyone you need to forgive?
