13. Genesis 49:28-50:26 Provision for Posterity (Ed Van Cott) 1-1-84

For the missing sermons, I generally recommend the sermon collection at the Gospel Coalition website, which has high standards for what it includes, although for one sermon I would recommend a sermon elsewhere (from someone whose sermons the Gospel Coalition does usually include, but this one is more recent).

On chapter 40, I especially recommend Dale Ralph Davis' sermon at the Gospel Coalition site.

On chapter 41, I recommend a sermon by Iain Duguid, which can be found here (preached on 10/23/2011, in case that helps locate it more easily).

On chapter 46, I recommend the Kent Hughes sermon at the Gospel Coalition site. (The Dale Ralph Davis sermon there does not cover the entirety of ch.36, and some of the others there cover longer sections than just ch.46.)

Trinity Fellowship sermons typically work through books or sections of books at a time. Occasionally there will be a topical series. This one is unique in being the only one in the history of Trinity Fellowship that occurred instead of a series from a gospel, and for that reason the elders chose to lead up to Easter in this series with three sermons from the end of Mark's gospel, which would have come up in 1986 ordinarily. There is no outline/introduction to this series. 

1. Doctrine of the Christian Life (Al Gurley) 1-12-86
2. Ephesians 5:15-6:4 The Christian Family (Doug Weeks) 1-19-86 [had three short drop-outs; one is now audible but noisy]

12. Genesis 11:9-32 Genesis, conclusion (Jim Pitcher) 12-21-80

For the missing sermons, I recommend the sermon collection at the Gospel Coalition website, which has high standards for what it includes. On chapters 5-6, I can personally recommend sermons by Dale Ralph Davis, Kent Hughes, Thabiti Anyabwile, and John Fesko, whose sermons I'm more familiar with. On chapter 11, G.I. Williamson and Iain Duguid stand out in my mind (and many of the ones listed cover the section that isn't missing here).

Rick Wellman preached on Genesis 4:1-8 in a sermon entitled Anger: the Story of Cain on 6-20-99. See the topical sermons here.
Doug Weeks preached on Genesis 3:1-8 in a sermon entitled God is Good on 9-3-00. See the same topical series just listed.
