As you know, I have been reading the Chronological Bible. So far, there haven't been any big revelations, but since most of Genesis is somewhat of a review, little thoughts have crept in. This week focused on Joseph, the one who was sold into slavery by his brothers. Eventually, the brothers come to Egypt for grain, learn what happened to Joseph, and give Jacob the wonderful news that Joseph is alive and wants them all to settle in Egypt. What is not mentioned is if the brothers come clean to their father. I wonder if they ever told Jacob the truth of how Joseph ended up in Egypt. I can hear the bellowing now: "YOU DID WHAT?!!!" I totally would like to have been a fly on the wall for that conversation.
