Summary of passage: So Joseph, all of Pharaoh’s officials, all the members of Joseph’s family, chariots, and horsemen journeyed to Canaan to bury Jacob. At Atad near the Jordan River, Joseph stopped and mourned 7 days for Jacob. He was buried and all returned to Egypt.
6) High. He sent practically all the nobles with Joseph to bury Jacob as well as chariots and horsemen to escort and protect them.
7a) The mourning at the threshing floor of Atad.
b) They mourned 7 days for him and buried him in the Promised Land.
c) Personal Question. My answer: Not a lot. Comfort is not the word. Encouragement, yes. Comfort, no.
Conclusions: Overarching theme: Jacob was greatly revered in Egypt. 7c was out of place. Again, stretching this lesson. One question would have been sufficient for this passage.
Fun Fact: No other burial is recorded in Scripture with such pomp, detail, and honor.
