JOSEPH AND HIS BROTHERS BIBLE STORY

JOSEPH AND HIS BROTHERS BIBLE STORY STUDY ON JOSEPH AND HIS BROTHERS BIBLE STORY EVENTS WITH JOSEPH AND HIS BROTHERS BIBLE STORY MESSAGE
 

            Aha!  There you are!  Knew youíd be back soon to find out what happened after our last story.  Letís refresh our mind's a lil, shall we?  Joseph interpreted the Pharaohís dreams.  For his blessed insight, he was put in charge of the land of Egypt, second only to Pharaoh.  There were seven years of plenty and Joseph stored food for Egypt for the anticipated famine.  Then the famine struck the whole earth.  People from other countries came to Joseph in Egypt to buy corn. 

            Right about now youíre probably wondering how Israel and Josephís brothers are faring back in Canaan, so letís take a look in on them and find out.  As we said once before, you can have all the money in the world, but money canít make the land grow food Ö however, it can buy it.  Now, when Israel heard that there was corn in Egypt, he said to his sons, Donít just stand there staring at one another, thereís corn in Egypt.  Go down there and buy some so we donít starve to death.  So Josephís ten brothers left for Egypt, but Israel didnít let Benjamin, Josephís youngest brother, go with them in case anything bad happened.

             When Josephís brothers got there, they bowed down in front of him with their faces to the ground.  Joseph knew who they were, but they didnít recognize him.  He didnít reveal his identity to them, but talked through an interpreter to them and asked roughly, Where are you from?  They answered him, From the land of Canaan to buy food. 

JOSEPH AND HIS BROTHERS BIBLE STORY LESSON WITH JOSEPH AND HIS BROTHERS BIBLE STORY EXPLANATION AND JOSEPH AND HIS BROTHERS BIBLE STORY SUMMARY

            Joseph remembered the dreams he had about them, and said to them, Youíre spies!  Youíve come to see the weakness of the land.  They replied, No, my lord, your servants have come to buy food.  We are all the sons of one man, we are honest men, your servants arenít spies.  Joseph repeated himself, No, to see the weakness of the land is why youíre here.  They told Joseph, Your servants are twelve brothers, the sons of one man in the land of Canaan.  The youngest stayed home with our father, and one has died.

            Joseph said to them, Prove that you arenít spies by bringing your youngest brother here.  One of you will go and get him and the rest will stay in prison until they return.  He put all of them together in jail for three days.  On the third day he said to them, Do this and live, because I respect God.  If you are honest men, let one of your brothers be held in prison. Go take corn to your houses, but bring your youngest brother back to me, then you will prove your innocence and you will not die.  

            In their minds, they were remembering what they did to Joseph and knew that it was coming back to haunt them.  Thinking that Joseph could not understand them because of the interpreter, they said to one another, We are so guilty about what we did to Joseph.  We saw the anguish in his soul when he pleaded with us and we wouldnít listen.  Thatís why this is happening.  Reuben said, I warned you not to sin against him, but you wouldnít listen, so now weíre paying for it.

            Joseph turned his back to them so they couldnít see his face, and wept.  Then he faced them again and tied Simeon up in front of them all.  He gave orders to his servants to fill their sacks with corn and put every manís money back in his sack along with food for the way.

JOSEPH AND HIS BROTHERS BIBLE STORY INFORMATION WITH JOSEPH AND HIS BROTHERS BIBLE STORY MEANING AND JOSEPH AND HIS BROTHERS BIBLE STORY DISCUSSION

            They left for Canaan and when they came to the inn on the way, one of them opened his sack to get food for his donkey, and saw his money.  He said to his brothers, The money that I used to pay for the corn is still in my sack!  This worried them terribly, and they said to one another, Why has God done this to us?

            When they got home, they told Israel everything that happened, and when they emptied their sacks, each and every manís money was back in his sack.  When they and their father saw it, they were all afraid.  Israel said, Joseph is gone, Simeon is gone and you will take Benjamin away too.  All these things are against me. 

            And Reuben said, Kill my two sons if I donít bring Benjamin home to you.  Let me take him and I will bring him back again.  But Israel couldnít part with Benjamin, even with Reubenís solemn promise.  Israel said, My son will not go down with you.  His brother is dead and heís left alone.  If anything happens to him, youíll send me in sorrow to my grave.

            If you stop and think about this story, not many people would have blamed Joseph if he put all his brothers in prison and left it at that.  He could have sold all of them as slaves, just as they did to him.  He could have done many things in revenge of how they wronged him.  But this man, blessed by God through the many years since it happened, and through many circumstances, both fortunate and unfortunate, chose to act differently.  Weíll continue this story in our next Daily Bread, so come back and join us.
