    Verse 27~Joseph still had deep love and concern for his father even though he had been away from him for many years. We want to continue to show concern and love for our parents.

    Verse 30: When our emotions seem to be getting the best of us in a situation, it may be best to take our leave and regain our composure.
  • Elizabeth on Genesis 43
    In many times we go away from the presence of God yet when are being attached that's when we normally remember that there is a God who takes good care of us. when we read the story of the prodigal son this is also in line with what happened to the brothers of Joseph. and what i can encourage is lets not forget our creator who created us in his own image who takes good care us.
  • Dewey J on Genesis 43
    Aamer, though Jacob had only 12 sons Abraham was the first to be called a Hebrew in the land of and near Canaan. But that is not the origin of the word. One can trace the word back to people speaking the Semitic language especially the Hebrew and Arabic people. Also, there 's no evidence that Abraham was a Catholic since the Catholic church came to be acknowledged in the second century after the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ during the remaining Roman Empire. God bless us all and also in the understanding of his Word. Glory be to God in the highest through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen!
  • Aamer on Genesis 43
    How did the Egyptians know about Hebrews when Jacob had only 12 sons? They had an interpreter for Joseph, and culturally in was not lawful for an Egyptian to eat with a Hebrew. How could this be, if they really were not a major people but a large Catholic family at this point in time?

    I believe Egypt traded with the surrounding people. That's how Joseph ended up in Egypt. He was sold by his brothers to traders going down into Egypt. And why Abrahams sons went down to Egypt.
  • Stephen on Genesis 43:17
    Slaughter and animal and we feast. Reminds me of the Prodigal Son. Was this about sinners returning to God or and the Jews being reconciled to him through Christ?
  • Joseph on Genesis 43
    There was enough evidence that the brothers of Joseph had changed from their wickedness by speaking the truth as regards the money that was mysteriously 'returned ' to them, and taken back to Joseph when they went the second time. Restitution is not a common thing nowadays due to economic challenges but as Christians we must restore back to the owners anything that is not ours in our possession. May God help us never to walk ahead of Him but to follow His footsteps in Jesus Name

    God is in control of all of our lives in him we live,move and have our being.

    do we know there is a famine in the land or how long it will last God wants us to come to HIM only some of us will not go much less stay unless we have a silver cup
  • Justus Idiama Otiang'a on Genesis 43
    We Never Test The Resources of God until We Attempt The Impossible. Heb 11:1. For You to be Abetter You, You must go through what men narrow see and say it is Impossible.
  • Pamela on Genesis 43:28
    I think it is saying that the father had become of old age and is still living meaning that he is a strong man who believes in God

    WILL WE TRUST GOD WHEN OUR BACK IS UP AGAINST THE WALL AND FEEL LIKE ALL HOPE IS GONE? LETS BE TRUTHFUL CAUSE WE NEED TOO TRUST GOD IN ALL SITUATIONS. OUR GOD IS FAITHFUL
  • RALPH WATERS on Genesis 43
    IN THIS CHAPTER WE SEE HOW ISRAEL WAS PRESSURED TO LET HIS YOUNGEST GO TO EGYPT.

    THIS SHOWS SOMETIMES WHEN OUR BACKS ARE UP AGAINST THE WALL WE STEP OUT IN FEAR.

    LETS START PRACTICING TO STEP OUT IN FAITH AND COURAGE.
