Death of Joseph in Egypt Event
How great to see you have returned to share another story with Daily
Bread. The last time we read about the blessings that Israel gave to
his twelve children.Today we will complete the book of Genesis.
That's right ... If you have followed along with us from the first
... You will have completed the Book of Genesis after this study.
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 eyes.
How Joseph Died
Death of Joseph in Egypt
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.
Joseph Died in Peace
Death of Joseph in Egypt Was Blissful
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.
