JOSEPH'S BROTHERS WARNING
JOSEPH AND HIS BROTHERS BIBLE STORY EXPLAINED
Aha! There you are! Knew you'd be
back soon to find out what happened after our last story. Let's refresh our
mind's a lil, shall we? Joseph interpreted the Pharaoh's 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 you're probably
wondering how Israel and Joseph's brothers are faring back in Canaan, so
let's 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 can't make the land grow food ...
however, it can buy it. Now, when Israel heard that there was corn in
Egypt, he said to his sons, Don't just stand there staring at one another,
there's corn in Egypt. Go down there and buy some so we don't starve to
death. So Joseph's ten brothers left for Egypt, but Israel didn't let
Benjamin, Joseph's youngest brother, go with them in case anything bad
When Joseph's brothers got
there, they bowed down in front of him with their faces to the ground.
Joseph knew who they were, but they didn't recognize him. He didn't 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
JOSEPH'S BROTHERS PAYBACK
JOSEPH AND HIS BROTHERS BIBLE STORY JUSTICE
Joseph remembered the dreams he had
about them, and said to them, You're spies! You've 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
aren't spies. Joseph repeated himself, No, to see the weakness of the land
is why you're 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
aren't 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
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 wouldn't listen.
That's why this is happening. Reuben said, I warned you not to sin against
him, but you wouldn't listen, so now we're paying for it.
Joseph turned his back to them so they
couldn't 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 man's money back in his sack along with food for the
JOSEPH'S BROTHERS REVENGE
JOSEPH AND HIS BROTHERS BIBLE STORY FEARS AND TEARS
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
man's 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
don't bring Benjamin home to you. Let me take him and I will bring him back
again. But Israel couldn't part with Benjamin, even with Reuben's solemn
promise. Israel said, My son will not go down with you. His brother is
dead and he's left alone. If anything happens to him, you'll send me in
sorrow to my grave.
JOSEPH'S BROTHERS SUMMARY
JOSEPH AND HIS BROTHERS BIBLE STORY CONCLUSION
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 for what they did to him when he was younger. 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. We'll continue this story in our next Daily
Bread, so come back and join us.
