Genesis 30:22-24 – Joseph was born                Genesis 35:27-29 – Isaac died

In Genesis 49:29-32 to Gen. 50:7, Joseph’s dad , Jacob, dies and Joseph gets permission to bury him.  Joseph’s grandparents were buried in the same burial place.  I wonder if Joseph mourned for them as well.  Earlier in the Scripture, when Jacob came to be with his dying dad, Isaac, he probably brought his family.  Maybe Joseph got to talk a little with his grandpa that day.  Two chapters after Isaac’s death, Joseph is 17 years old so maybe he was a teenager when his dad visited his grandpa.
