Chumash Classes: Mikeitz, Part 4: Yaakov Sends Ten of His Sons to Egypt to Buy Grain

Ch. 42 verses 1-23: Yaakov sends 10 of his sons to Egypt to buy grain. They go there with the intent of locating Yosef and freeing him. Yosef, the viceroy recognizes them but they do not recognize him. He accuses them of being spies and puts them in jail for three days. He decides to free all but one of them on the condition that they return to Egypt with their youngest brother to prove their innocence. Seeing that the viceroy had reevaluated his decision made them relook their lack of compassion for Yosef when they sold him.
