Joseph forgives his brothers (Genesis 45:1-15)
Much has happened in the story of Joseph between last week's reading, and today's. Joseph was sold into slavery by his jealous brothers, and rose to become vizier, a high official and the second most powerful man in Egypt next to Pharaoh, where his presence and office caused Israel to leave Canaan and settle in Egypt. In today's story, Joseph forgives his brothers for their betrayal.
