The brothers meet again

Here’s what happened when Anna and her friend Carolyn read this Bible story together.


Anna is an11-year-old missionary kid in Kenya.

Anna wondered: “Why didn’t Joseph’s brothers recognise him, if he recognised them?”



Carolyn answered: “They had sold Joseph into slavery when he was a teenager. They never expected to see him again, and certainly not as an Egyptian ruler. He was all grown up, dressed like an Egyptian and just totally out of their thinking. They were also probably scared when he questioned them harshly, so weren’t thinking clearly.”
