Vayechi: Who Is Joseph’s Real Father?

jacob and joseph

When Joseph agrees to bury Jacob in Canaan, Jacob bows to him in relief – why? What was Jacob worried about? In this video, the last of the book of Genesis, Rabbi Fohrman explores Joseph’s tension between his commitments to Jacob and Pharaoh, and the meaning of his choice to bury Jacob in Canaan.

  1. He says to Joseph “thy father ” when addressing his sons in GENESIS!

  2. I can't get a clear commet

  3. If Joseph was brought up by the laws of Moses, should he not then hnour his father Jacob's wishes?

  4. Chuck W Bird says:

    Joseph was not Jewish, only Yehuda. sorry for your mistake, only one of the tribes was Joseph, and only one was of the tribe of Yehuda, there is 12 tribes, and looking for answers in Talmud is a mistake, look for the answers in Torah.
