Genesis 35:27-29 NIV
27 Jacob came home to his father Isaac in Mamre, near Kiriath Arba (that is, Hebron), where Abraham and Isaac had stayed. 28 Isaac lived a hundred and eighty years. 29 Then he breathed his last and died and was gathered to his people, old and full of years. And his sons Esau and Jacob buried him.
Genesis 37:1-2 NIV
Jacob lived in the land where his father had stayed, the land of Canaan.
2 This is the account of Jacob’s family
Joseph, a young man of seventeen, was tending the flocks with his brothers, the sons of Bilhah and the sons of Zilpah, his father’s wives, and he brought their father a bad report about them.
My query is that the death of Isaac is narrated in Genesis 35 and the enslavement of Joseph is told in Genesis 37.I would have thought Joseph's enslavement should have been mentioned first followed by the death of Isaac.Thought Isaac died while Joseph was already in Canaan.I was asking whether that the events of Genesis 37 took place before the events of Genesis 35
Im not sure whether i have read the events in the above texts correctly.In the above chronology it seems Issac died in Genesis 35 while Joseph was still in Canaan before his brothers sold him to the Midianite merchants in Genesis 37.
Did Isaac die before Joseph was sold to the Midianites?
