Genesis 43

The 2nd Journey to Egypt

 

The Vizier of Egypt had commanded the brothers not to return to Egypt to purchase grain without the youngest brother Benjamin. Jacob had refused to allow Benjamin to go for fear that something bad would happen to him.  But now he had no choice. The famine was very severe and they needed grain.

One final test awaits as Joseph has planned a way to discern the brothers true feelings about what they had done to him by selling him into slavery.
