Volume II covers the reason why eleven of the original twelve tribes went into slavery. Joseph’s two sons were not slaves because Joseph was made a free man by the acting pharaoh. You will find out who that Pharaoh was. About 26 percent of Genesis is directly or indirectly about Joseph and what he did in Egypt. There is a very good reason for this. It is because of who Joseph was in Egypt and what he did as Prime Minister. By the end of the slavery period, when the Exodus occurred in 1306 b.c.e., there were only ten of the original enslaved eleven tribes left. You must ask the question why did Moses count Joseph’s two sons as separate tribes. It should have been the tribe of Joseph. Everyone must ask that question. This Volume will answer why.

     The key to unraveling the Joseph story was identifying who Joseph was in Egyptian history. The author, Douglas Vogt, did that and that information made the difference.
