Who is Ephraim?
Ephraim/Aprim was one of the children of Iusp. In fact he was the last born son of Iusp by
the daughter of the priest of On/An. It was
after the release of Iusp and with him standing before the king of
Mtzrim, that is before Proe/Pharoh, that Proe gave him his wife. From this union two sons are born. The first born is
Manasheh/Mnse and the second born is
Aprim. At the interpretation of the dream by Iusp to Proe, Iusp was 30 yrs of age. It was after his appearing before Proe that he was married to the daughter of the priest of An. Somewhere before the 7 lean years came, the boys were born. The mother of the
boys was known by the name of Asenath/Asnt
The boys grew up and during the scarcity of food in the land, the youths got to
see their GrandFather, Isral, for the first time.
Isral stayed in Mtzrim
for 17 yrs and during that last year of the 17th year he called for Iusp.
When Isral called for
Iusp, he made him promise that at his death, he
Iusp, was to take his body and bury him in the cave of
Machpelah/Emkple with his fathers.
Iusp swore that he would do this which he did.
