Joseph Reunited with his Family

Joseph Reunited with his Family

After testing his brothers to see if they had changed over the years, Joseph finally decides to reveal who he is to them. Stunted and dismayed, Joseph's brothers fear for their lives, remembering their sin. But Joseph comforts them and invites the whole family to Egypt so they can be spared from the famine.

Genesis 46:30
In our previous episode we learned how Joseph’s brothers travelled to Egypt, not knowing their long-lost brother was alive and well, the second-in-command in all of Egypt. We discovered that Joseph’s brothers had indeed become different men. And when Joseph saw them falling before him and begging him to release their youngest brother, Benjamin, it was too much to bear. Today we’ll learn how Joseph responded in that moment, and how his response to his brothers testified powerfully to God’s sovereignty.
