Joseph’s Beautiful Robe
约瑟的美丽长袍

雅各有12个儿子,但他最偏爱的是约瑟。因为雅各非常爱约瑟,所以给他做了一件五彩斑斓、有很多奇妙装饰的美丽长袍。约瑟的哥哥们看见了,就知道父亲偏爱约瑟,于是他们就嫉恨约瑟。

有一天,约瑟的哥哥们正在田里放羊,雅各派约瑟去看看他们的情况。当约瑟快走近哥哥们时,哥哥们想出了一个邪恶的计谋要害他。他们扯下他的长袍,把他扔到一口空井里,约瑟被困在了井里面! 后来,有一些商人带着他们的骆驼和马车经过,约瑟的哥哥们就把约瑟卖给了商人当奴隶。

他们要怎么和自己的父亲解释呢? 哥哥们想了一个计划,他们把约瑟的那件彩衣蘸在山羊的血里,带回去给雅各看。“噢, 不好了!” 他们说,“约瑟被野兽杀死了!”

后来,商人们把约瑟带到了遥远的埃及。约瑟不得不在埃及做奴隶,后来他又被关进了监狱里。一切都看起来糟透了,但上帝有一个计划。上帝把约瑟从监狱里救了出来,又使他成为了法老的宰相,也就是埃及国王的一位特殊助手,一个顾问。

成为法老顾问的约瑟后来救了所有人的性命。事情的经过是这样的:上帝告诉约瑟,不久将会有一场饥荒。在饥荒中,雨水不再降落,庄稼停止生长,人们会饥饿致死。于是约瑟想出来一个好计划,法老也认可了。这个计划就是,每年大家都预留出来一些粮食,把它们储存在一些大仓库里。之后,等饥荒到来的时候,埃及人就有粮食吃了。

你知道,在饥荒中,还有谁也获得了这些存在埃及的粮食吗? 就是那几个恨恶约瑟的哥哥们。约瑟的家人当时也在挨饿,所以他们来到埃及寻找食物。当他们看到约瑟成了一位很有权势的人,他们都很震惊!最终,他们说他们很后悔曾经对约瑟那么坏。后来,他们也把父亲带到了埃及,全家人就在那里住了许多年。

你知道为什么上帝要通过约瑟来使雅各一家在饥荒中活下来吗?
因为救主耶稣会出生于雅各的家族。

当我把约瑟的长袍挂上耶西树。
我会收到这个将临期的应许:

上帝使用约瑟来保护了他父亲雅各与他哥哥们的安全。
很多年后,耶稣将从他们的家族中诞生。



Now, Jacob had 12 sons—but his favorite was Joseph. Because Jacob loved Joseph so much, he gave him a beautiful robe with lots of colors and wonderful decorations on it. When Joseph’s brothers saw that robe, they could tell that their father loved Joseph best. So they hated Joseph.

One day, Jacob sent Joseph to check on his brothers while they worked out in the fields with the sheep. As Joseph got closer, his brothers made an evil plan to hurt him. They yanked off his robe and threw him into an empty well. He couldn’t get out! Then, when some merchants came by with their camels and wagons, the brothers sold Joseph to the merchants as a slave.

What would they tell their father? They had a plan for that too. They took Joseph’s beautiful robe, dipped it in goat’s blood, and then showed it to Jacob. “Oh, no!” they said. “Joseph was killed by a wild animal!”
The merchants took Joseph far away to Egypt. There he was forced to work as a slave. And then he was put into prison. It looked like everything was going wrong. But God had a plan. God brought Joseph out of prison and made him a special helper, an advisor, for Pharaoh, the king of Egypt!

As Pharaoh’s advisor, Joseph saved his family’s life. This is how: God had told Joseph that soon there would be a famine. In a famine, the rain stops falling, and the crops stop growing, and people starve to death. So Joseph made a plan, and Pharaoh agreed to it.
The plan was to save some grain every year and store it in big warehouses. Then, when the
famine came, the people of Egypt had food to eat!

You know who else received some of that food in Egypt? Joseph’s brothers who hated him. Their families were hungry too, so they came to Egypt to get food. When they saw that Joseph had become a powerful ruler, they were shocked! Eventually, they said they were sorry they had been mean to him. Then they brought their father to Egypt too, and the whole family lived there for many years.

Do you know why it’s important that through Joseph, Jacob’s family was saved from starvation?
Because Jesus the Savior would be born in Jacob’s family.

As I hang JOSEPH’S ROBE on the JESSE TREE,
Here is an Advent promise for me:

God used Joseph to keep his father, Jacob, and his brothers safe.
From that family, many years later, Jesus was born.
