Bible study 44 – Genesis 44

Joseph has a silver cup planted inside of Benjamin’s bag, and then accuses him of theft and threatens him with slavery. But Judah steps forward and says that they have promised their father Jacob to bring Benjamin back, and that their father will die and go to Sheol (a Hades-like place that dead Jews went to before they had discovered resurrection) if they don’t. Judah even offers himself as a slave in place of Benjamin.
