    Is it possible Josef's bris became fresh skin again, and we know blind people have better senses to compensate for the blindness....

    I cannot agree with this explanation that Yosef's oath was necessary so that Yaakov could pull the Jews out of Egypt. If this is the need for the oath of Yosef, then we nullify the oath of the Almighty, given to Abraham - Bi nishbati. It turns out that the oath of the Almighty is superfluous, unnecessary. And this is not true. And she really is not connected with Pharaoh, just as she is not connected with the liberation from Egypt, because the Almighty promised Jacob that he would lead him out of Egypt and Joseph would close his eyes. And why was Yosef's oath needed then? Because Yaakov knew the state of Yosef's soul and felt his resentment for his mother Rachel, this is stated in the open text, and therefore he was afraid that Yosef would not bury him in a cave with the forefathers, but bury him next to Rachel. It was for this reason that he needed Yosef's oath.

      Very nice, but there was a thing called chassidus, it's not Kabbalah and it's not sod..

          this is the Rebbes shlita chassidus you are rejecting

           Shakoyach
