EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)Genesis 45:4.
Joseph's kindred ... - His relatives; his family, Genesis 45:16.Genesis 45:3,4,16, Joseph made himself known unto them.
Joseph’s kindred was made known unto Pharaoh; for the continuance of their sustenance, and fulfilling of what was foretold. Genesis 45:1.
And Joseph's kindred was made known unto Pharaoh; for though it was known before that he was an Hebrew, see Genesis 39:17 yet it was not known of what family he was, who was his father, or his brethren, but now it was known, Genesis 45:16.And at the second time Joseph was made known to his brethren; and Joseph's kindred was made known unto Pharaoh.
EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)Acts 7:13. ἀνεγνωρίσθη: the compound verb apparently from LXX, Genesis 45:1.—φανερὸν ἐγέν., cf. Luke 8:17; Luke 4:36; Luke 1:65; Luke 6:49, etc.; on Luke’s fondness for periphrasis with γίνομαι, see Plummer on Luke 4:36.—τὸ γένος τοῦ Ἰ.: R.V. “race,” so Acts 7:19, cf. Acts 4:36, because wider than συγγένειαν, “kindred,” in Acts 7:14. R.V. “became manifest” strictly; the captain of the guard, Genesis 41:12, had previously mentioned that Joseph was a Hebrew, but the fact which had been only mentioned incidentally “became manifest” when Joseph’s brethren came, and he revealed himself to them, so that Pharaoh and his household were aware of it, Acts 7:16. It was not until later that five of Joseph’s brethren were actually presented to Pharaoh, Genesis 47:1 ff. (Hackett).13. was made known] The original is not the same in the two clauses for this expression. Read in the latter “Joseph’s kindred became known,” &c.Acts 7:13. Ἀνεγνωρίσθη, was made known to, was recognised by) Made himself known to or recognised by: Genesis 45:1 in the LXX., ἀνεγνωρίζετο τοῖς ἀδελφοῖς αὐτοῦ.Verse 13. - Race became manifest for kindred was made known, A.V. "Kindred" is a much better word here, because Joseph's "race" was already known to Pharaoh (Genesis 41:12); "was made known" is a far better phrase than "became manifest."
Note the repetition of the name. "A certain sense of patriotic pride is implied in it."
