When did Yaakov choose Yosef to be the Bechor?
Is it in Vaychi 48:5 when Yaakov said "KiR'uven v'Shimon yihyeh lee"?
- Vaychi 48:5
- Vaychi 48:22
- Torah T'mimah there 17
- Quoting TB Bava Batra 123a
- Vayeishev 37:3: "K'tonet Passim"
Note: Both implying pee sh'nayim...
Vayeishev - when Yaakov gave Yosef the K'tonet Passim; which implied that Yosef now held the mantle of "B'chor"?
BE"H we will cover Vaychi next and reflect back to Vayeishev and Vayishlach later.
