The Bible Slam: Genesis Chapter 44

After their dinner in Chapter 43, Joseph instructs his people to fill the brothers' sacks to the brim with grain and to place his special silver cup and the corn money in the youngest brother Benjamin's sack.

When the brothers leave, he has one of his bondsmen follow them and ask if they stole a silver cup.   The cup is discovered in Benjamin's sack and everyone heads back to Joseph's place in Egypt for their punishment, which is to serve as Joseph's slaves.   Joseph tells the brothers that he will only enslave Benjamin and the rest can go, but they worry about how the father will react.

Discussion Points.

It is unclear why Joseph continues to deceive his brothers.   He was able to see Benjamin … so the purpose of making Benjamin look like a criminal in this chapter (King James version) is unclear.
