Yosef as King of Egypt

10.12.18

Question

As Yosef was the second highest ranking person in Egypt, he had the resources to search for his father. Why did he not do that?

Answer

To the Questioner, 

See explanation of Ramban to Breishis 42:9, that Yosef's intent was to delay his revealing himself to his father in order to see the fulfillment of the dreams which he had originally dreamt, which could only take place when his father and all his brothers would come to Egypt. 

With Blessings,
Rav Nachum
