2.Â Continuing the work of Joseph.
Joseph was the revealer of secrets, "AND PHARAOH CALLED JOSEPH'S NAME ZAPHNATHPAANEAH" [Genesis 41:45] i.e. He who explains hidden matters.
By revealing the ancestral identity of Israelite Peoples and its historical expressions we are furthering the work of Joseph and perhaps bringing the Time of Redemption a little closer.
