Genesis 47:20, Did Joseph buy the land where his family was?

Question: Hello! In Gen 47:20, during the famine, Joseph bought all the land of Egypt. So did he also buy the land where his own family was? And is this how they became or the beginning of how they became slaves in Egypt? Answer: Joseph bought the land from the people who ran out of money and livestock, this would not have included his family. His family was probably provided for by Joseph personally at no cost (Genesis 47:12). So this is not how they became slaves, that will happen a while after Joseph's death. -PJ
