Genesis 42 – Reading Note

  • Joseph was a very godly man but he still treated his brothers badly when they came to buy grain from him. What motivated him to do that?
  • But he also still cared for them. He gave them back their money and provisions for their journey. Granted, those actions might not have required much effort on his part but it showed he showed some mercy towards them.
  • Home Joseph was the one selling the grain (v 6)? He was very important. Should the task not have been delegated to someone else?
  • Reuben offered to have both his sons killed if they did not return with Benjamin (v 37). I’d like to know what was going on inside his head, the poor boys.
