i don't think yosef or yaakov did t'shuvah (repented)

i don't remember where i read this, but some1 suggested that yosef/joseph never took any responsibility for the arrogant behavior that led his brothers 2 hate him. as 4 yaakov/jacob, he was so oblivious 2 his part in his son's disappearance that he perpetuated the crime of favoritism right down 2 the next generation, choosing the younger efrayim/ephraim over the older menashe/manasseh.

update: See The story of Yosef/Joseph for links to other recent posts re Yosef on my blog.

pls pardon poor typing--2 broken wrists

See here for my take on this theme, and how the Ephrayim/Menashe story represents its climax.
