Have to move fast!  Genesis only takes 4 days in the B90 plan.

Abraham has Isaac.  Isaac has Jacob (and an older brother - big story - read it yourself!).  Jacob has 12 sons with 4 women (they tried out the "here have my maid" thing like Sarah).  The 10 older sons sell Joseph into slavery in Egypt.  He fares well, and eventually interprets the dreams of Pharaoh, who subsequently puts him in charge of all of the country.  The other brothers show up looking for grain and don't realize it is their brother.  After some deception and soul searching, it all works out, and Jacob and his whole family move to Egypt.  This then sets up the movie The 10 Commandments, and the book of Exodus.

Gen 50:15-20  And when Joseph's brethren saw that their father was dead, they said, Joseph will peradventure hate us, and will certainly requite us all the evil which we did unto him. And they sent a messenger unto Joseph, saying, Thy father did command before he died, saying,  So shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the trespass of thy brethren, and their sin; for they did unto thee evil: and now, we pray thee, forgive the trespass of the servants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spake unto him.  And his brethren also went and fell down before his face; and they said, Behold, we be thy servants. and Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God?  But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.
