Finally Joseph’s brothers internalized what it means to be a family and refused to abandon their solitary half-brother Benjamin, what lesson did Joseph internalize? Once their father Jacob passes away, the brothers are frightened that Joseph will exact revenge on them so Joseph reassures them “Fear not, for am I instead of God? While you meant evil toward me, God meant it for good…” Rashi explains that this was the lesson that Joseph internalized. The brothers had wanted to harm him but all their machinations led to naught and God ensured that Joseph succeeded. Thus Joseph tells his brothers not to concern themselves with whether he wants to harm them, for even if he did, God has His ways and therefore it is not Joseph that they need to fear but God.
