Even when something is wrong, it can still be instructive :) (But, yeah. I give it more as an example than a truth...)

comment What do bible authors mean by “they remain there till this day…”?
This is a good answer, but would be improved with a reference to theopedia.com/JEDP_theory. Typically, these are considered to be written during the kingdom period.

comment What is the oldest existing copy of Genesis?
Are you looking to see Genesis as a distinct book from the other 4 books of the Torah, or just as the Torah being distinct from the Ketu'vim and Nevi'im?

comment Why didn't Joseph try to contact his father from Egypt?
One more observation: As wandering bedouins, actually tracking down where the family was currently grazing their sheep may have been much easier said than done.

comment The Hebrew word Yom
This really a doctrinal question, not a textual one, and one that has been dealt with over at C.SE: christianity.stackexchange.com/questions/7476/…. This is a valid position, but it calls for a doctrinal rather than exegetical answer.
