Joseph (Part 2)

Hello!  We continue today with the story of Joseph, with a 15 minute reading.  We pick up where we left off yesterday in the middle of the drought.  We hear in today's reading about "the man" it is important to remember that this is Joseph, and it is only because his brothers don't recognize him that gives him the name "the man."  Also it is helpful to remember that Jacob (Joseph and his brothers dad) was renamed to Israel...that is what he is referred to in todays reading.  Its good to notice how un-trusting Jacob/Israel as well as his boys are in this reading.  The only one who seems to show trust is Joseph, the one of the bunch who has been betrayed the most.

At the end of this reading the family is once again reunited, but certainly not without lots of strife throughout!
