Joseph: Jacob's Family Disintegrates


Jacob was the patriarch of Israel, but he wasn't always a good parent. In fact, his preference for his wife Rachel led him to love Joseph more than all his other sons. Because of Jacob's favoritism, the sons ultimately turned on Joseph. Here, John Lennox discusses the dissolution of Jacob's family, particularly through the lens of his troubled and less-favored son, Reuben.
