Genesis 41:50-52, Genesis 46:19-22

Bible fans know that Jacob and Rachel had two sons, Joseph and Benjamin.  But did you stop to think that Joseph also had two sons?  Had Rachel survived, she would surely have noticed the similarity, felt an even stronger bond with Joseph and embraced her grandsons.

It’s interesting too that Benjamin had 10 sons.  In addition, Rachel’s two sons, Joseph’s sons and Benjamin’s sons are recorded as hers as well, making a total of 14 sons.
