Genesis 42 Families do strange things

Read Genesis 42

I never fully understood all that Joseph did when he saw his brothers. Maybe he was trying to determine if they'd repented of selling him. Maybe he wanted to see if they recognized him.

Joseph takes one as a hostage against them bringing Benjamin. I somewhat understand this, Benjamin was Joseph's only full brother, and Simeon was the one that bound Joseph and tossed him in the pit. That had to bring back some memories.
