Genesis 41:45, Was Joseph's wife Dinah and Shechem's daughter?

Congratulations to Karolina Avila for asking the 100th question for The Bible In 3 Years!

Question: Was Joseph's wife Dinah and Shechem's daughter? It never talks about Dinah being pregnant or mentions her again?

Answer: Jewish tradition says that Dinah became pregnant from her one night with Shechem (Gen 34) and that the daughter was abandoned by them, then adopted by a priest in Egypt. There is no Biblical support or other evidence for any of this. -PJ
