This covenant promised God’s creation of a chosen nation through Abraham’s descendants, through which humanity would overcome the implications of the Fall and return humankind to its original blessed state. God revealed himself to each of the patriarchs in a special manner. This allowed the patriarchs to have strong faith in Him, and enabled them to demonstrate and share their faith with others. God has many characteristics that allow him to relate with humans. In one instance, God wrestles with Jacob. He wrestles with him in as human, until Jacob is exhausted.

This fulfilled God’s promise through Abraham to enable humanity to overcome the effects of the fall. Joseph was the most favored son of Jacob, and he gave him a beautiful robe. Because of this, his brothers resented him, and sold him to slavery. Joseph was then exalted in Egypt when the king learned of his powers to interpret dreams.
