Did we hear correctly? The brothers did not sell Yosef! [Unless you've heard this shiur before,] this statement shocks almost anyone who is familiar with the story of Yosef and his brothers. However, the closer we scrutinize the details of this narrative and the more we take into account geographic considerations, the more convincing the possibility becomes.
In the following shiur, we take for granted that the reader is already familiar with the story. (For the reader unfamiliar with the story, it is recommended that you first read Breishit Perek 37.) We begin our study by paying careful attention to the brothers' various plans to 'get rid' of Yosef, but as we continue, we will focus primarily on Reuven's plan.
