Genesis 20 – Israel in Egypt
September 28, 2013
Israel goes to Egypt and sees Joseph, his son once again. When he meets with phararoh, Israel identifies himself as a shepherd, which means that the Egyptians will set them apart in the land. Joseph buys all the land in Egypt for pharaoh in exchange for feeding the people, and the people are grateful.
Israel begins to prepare for his death and makes Joseph promise to bury him outside of Egypt and in the land of his forefathers.
