Genesis 43 - 47

Genesis
GenesisSteve Gregg

In "Genesis 43 – 47", Steve Gregg discusses the stories of Joseph and his brothers during the famine in Egypt. The brothers return to Egypt with Benjamin and are tested by Joseph to see if they have repented for their past transgressions. Joseph forgives his brothers and allows them to bring their father, Jacob, to Egypt. The story of Joseph ends with the establishment of the Israelite family as a great nation, but the rest of Genesis focuses on administrative matters such as famine management and the distribution of blessings to Jacob's sons. Joseph's actions in collecting and storing food during the seven good years and taking 20% of it for the government during the bad years helped save Egypt from famine and became a lasting legacy in Egyptian law.
