Va-Yigash (Gen 44:18-47:27)

122714t ricky  by Rick Ortiz.   The well known story of Joseph who is thrown into a pit by his brothers, sold to the merchants going to Egypt, brought to Potipher’s house.  Put in charge of everything at Potipher’s, Joseph is falsely accussed by Potipher’s wife, put in prison.  He gets out of prison after years only when Pharaoh’s cup bearer remembers, long after a promise to bear witness to him much sooner.  Joseph interprets Pharaoh’s dream of impending famine, and is again put in charge “of all.”  Joseph deals with his brothers when they arrive in Egypt to buy food, but ultimately forgives them.
