Chapter 7:11 Now a famine came over all Egypt and Canaan, and great affliction with it, and our fathers could find no food.
Chapter 7:12 But when Jacob heard that there was grain in Egypt, he send our fathers there the first time.
Chapter 7:13 On the second visit, Joseph made himself known to his brothers, and Joseph’s family was disclosed to Pharaoh.
Chapter 7:14 Then Joseph sent word and invited Jacob his father and all his relatives to come to him, seventy-five persons in all.
Chapter 7:15 And Jacob went down to Egypt and there he and our fathers died.
Stephen continues with the history of the Israelites by telling the people of Joseph, his brothers and Jacob. We see in verse 13, that Joseph revealed himself to his brothers and made the situation known to Pharaoh. We also see in verse 14, seventy five people went to Egypt, which compared to Gen. 46:27, is a different number. The number of seventy five is because the son and grandson of Manasseh and two sons and a grandson of Ephraim were added. We will see in the following verses, Stephen making his case to the people and showing the unbelieving Jews how wrong they were.
