Jacob’s and Joseph’s Last Days

“Nearing death, Israel is anxious to pronounce final blessings upon his sons and grandsons, and to insure his burial in the tomb where Abraham and Isaac were buried.  Israel’s death marks the end of the early patriarchs, and attention begins to focus more broadly upon the nation which bears Israel’s name.  Joseph’s death is also recorded after the third generation of Israelites is born in Egypt.”
