The King Did Not Know Joseph
While Joseph lived and ruled under Pharaoh, the Hebrew people lived safely and prosperously in the region of Goshen in Egypt. But after Joseph died, things changed drastically. Joseph’s deeds were forgotten or dismissed. Instead of seeing the Hebrew people as those who brought deliverance in the time of famine, they were seen as threats. God had prospered the children of Israel as He had promised and the Egyptians are both jealous and afraid. This pattern has been repeated throughout history and continues today. It is the pattern of the future and the fulfillment of prophecy.
