As a ministry of Jeonju Antioch Church, AICF is following along with the main church’s 80-day Bible Reading Plan to close out 2020. Every day, follow along with the reading plan, a daily reflection, and meditation (writing in a spiritual journal) here on our website. We will be translating and using the main church’s plan from Korean to English here.
About the Reading
As most audio Bibles are an average of 75-hours in length, expect each daily reading to take between 45-60 minutes. For busy people who may not have time to sit down and read for that long, we will also provide links to audio versions, either on YouTube or elsewhere, that you can listen to throughout the day.

Genesis 42 – Exodus 3
Joseph and his brothers
May I live a life that of glad forgiveness for the transgressions of those who have hurt me, by the grace, beauty, and warm love of the Lord.
2. Key verses
- Genesis 45:5 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.
3. Scripture Reading
Genesis 42-Exodus 3
- English audio
- Korean audio
Joseph’s attitude toward his brothers (though late), when he prays for forgiveness, is a beautiful outward expression of his holiness. To his brothers who were trembling in fear and asking for forgiveness, Joseph was not a threat, but rather a comforter. He could have retaliated against them by taking advantage of his position as prime minister of Egypt, but he comforted them with a promise to ensure that his brothers and their children would live in peace. A holy life is a life lived with abundance and plenty remaining in any situation.
5. Writing a spiritual journal
After reading today’s text, write down the will of God that you came to realize, the passage that moved you, or what you decided to do and how you want to put it into practice.
