As Deacon Josh wraps up this section of Book 2, we see how the ancient prophecy/curse of Ishmael's wild ways turning all men against him as he is against every man has impacted the Jewish people, and been the foundation of continuous strife for the last several thousand years, including today's growing warfare and bloodshed whose source is in the Middle East...  Josephus goes on to speak to that part of history that is covered in the Genesis 40s chapters.  Jacob and his family is now in Egypt... and Josephus indicates the great respect the Egyptian rulers had for this man, even though, in any other circumstance, he would have been considered the scum of the earth since he and his family were shepherds.  All the honor given Jacob's family came directly as a result of the God-honoring and righteous way Joseph had led the Egyptian people during their times of great distress.
