14, Abraham Isaac, Canaan, foreigners, Israel, Jacob, promise
Joseph and his brothers: Genesis 37–50
If you’re keeping track of how long Abraham and his descendants lived as foreigners in Canaan, you could look to this point:
Genesis 37:1 So Jacob settled again in the land of Canaan, where his father had lived as a foreigner.
We’re up to three, maybe four generations: firstly Abraham and Isaac, and now Jacob and his sons.
That’s a long time to wait for a promise.
