Before his passing, Yaakov asks his son, Yosef, to bury him in Chevron although he did not do the same for Yosef’s mother, Rachel. Yaakov then proceeds to explain his reasons to Yosef, as Rashi says, “I know that your heart is troubled with me about that.”

But why was Yosef troubled? Did he doubt his father until he heard an explanation?

To understand this we need to first appreciate why Jews ask so many questions. Why can’t we just accept things without questioning? (Based on Hisva’aduyos 5746 vol. 2, pp. 312-313.)
