The Bible doesn’t have much to say about Asenath, but in the three verses in which she is mentioned by name, we learn a few things.

  1. She was married to Joseph (Genesis 41:45)
  2. Her father was Potipherah, Priest of On (Genesis 41:50)
  3. Her sons were Ephraim and Manasseh (Genesis 46:20)

Her sons Ephraim and Manasseh would eventually be adopted by Jacob and receive the birthright.

    Our Elohim has driven you to seek out truth and you are doing it. For HIS WORD says, “if my people who are called by my name would humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear them from heaven and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14. While I believe that some of our people don’t know who they are because they have been robbed of all things that identify who one is and where one belongs, a great many of us do not want to know this information for their lack of humility as well as their refusal to pray and seek Elohim’s face. Please keep searching, writing, and informing your and my people of our divine heritage.
