Genesis 42–43: On Joseph’s Brilliant, Premeditated-ish Plan for His Bowed-Down Brothers (Bible Talk, Ep. 15)

As far as Joseph’s brothers know, their brother is dead. They haven’t seen him in decades. So when they finally see their brother again—unbeknownst to them!—Joseph has a brilliant plan to see if they’ve been humbled, or if they’re still as wicked as they were when they threw him into a well and sold him into slavery.

In this episode of Bible Talk, Alex Duke chats with Jim Hamilton and Sam Emadi about Genesis 42–43.
