Let's begin ...
When we ended our last Daily Bread story, Israel had just died. All of
his children were with him when he died. Remember that the Lord told
him that Joseph would be with him at his death, back in Chapter 46:
I will go down with thee into Egypt; and I will also surely bring thee up
again: and Joseph shall put his hand upon thine
JOSEPH DIED LESSON WITH WHEN JOSEPH DIED EXPLANATION
AND WHEN JOSEPH DIED SUMMARY
Joseph loved Israel
very much. He fell on his dad’s face and wept on him and kissed him. He
had Israel embalmed and the Egyptians mourned for him for 70 days. After
that Joseph spoke to Pharaoh and asked him if he could go and bury his
father in Canaan.
The Pharaoh consented and all of
Pharaoh’s servants and all the elders of the land of Egypt went with him.
All of Joseph’s family and his brothers and Israel’s family went, only the
children and the livestock stayed back in the land of Goshen. Chariots and
horsemen accompanied them as well. Many people mourned at the death of
Israel and when the people of Canaan saw them coming, they remarked about
how terribly sad it must have been to the Egyptians. Israel was buried in
the cave in the field of Ephron, as he willed.
Joseph returned to Egypt with all his
brothers and all those that went with him to Canaan. Then Joseph’s brothers
began to worry that because Israel was gone, Joseph would now want revenge
for all that they did to him. They said to him, Before he died, our father
told us to tell you to forgive us for all the evil we did to you.
WHEN JOSEPH DIED INFORMATION WITH WHEN JOSEPH DIED MEANING
AND WHEN JOSEPH DIED DISCUSSION
Joseph cried when they said this. His
brothers all bowed in front of him and said, We are your servants. Joseph
was kind in his heart and told them, Don’t be afraid, Am I God? You wanted
to harm me, but God had other plans. He made it all turn out good, so that
many people were saved because of it. So don’t worry, I will take care of
you and your little ones.
Joseph lived 110 years and he saw his
children’s children’s children. And he said to his brothers. I am going to
die. God will be with you and bring you back to the land that He promised
to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He made his brothers promise that they would
take his bones out of Egypt. Joseph died, and they embalmed him, and he was
put in a coffin in Egypt.
