Joseph and Benjamin Bible Story Explained
I bet ya can't wait to find out what happens between Joseph and all
his brothers, can you? Well, let's review what's been happening.
There was a terrible famine. Joseph's brothers had to buy food
directly from Joseph, who they didn't recognize, however he
recognized them. He had his steward hide his silver cup in Benjamin's
sack so he could use this to keep his little brother with him. He
told them that Benjamin would become his servant, but Judah made a
tender plea to let him take Benjamin's place, to avoid breaking their
father's heart. That brings us up to date.
As you can well imagine, being the favorite and then hearing the pain
your father is enduring would certainly tug on anyone's heart
strings. And that at any moment, you have the power to ease his pain,
and indeed, bring him immeasurable joy by revealing that you're
alive, was no doubt flooding Joseph's mind.
Finally, he couldn't stand it any longer. He broke down and cried in
front of everyone. He ordered all his servants to leave while he
talked to his brothers, but his sentiment was so deep that everyone
could hear him.

He said, I'm Joseph, Is my father still alive? His brothers were so
shocked that they couldn't answer. And Joseph said, come close to me.
I'm Joseph, your brother, who you sold into Egypt. Don't be sad or
angry with yourselves. God sent me here to save peoples lives. The
famine has been in the land for two years now, but there are five
more years coming with no food. God knew what was going to happen, so
He sent me to save future generations in the earth and to save your
lives by a great deliverance. So you see, it wasn't you that sent me
here, it was God. And Pharaoh made me a ruler in all the land of
Now go to my father and tell him to come to me quickly, and you and
your families and your flocks and herds will live in the land of
Goshen and be near me. I'll take care of you and the famine won't
Joseph could tell that they recognized him again and he hugged
Benjamin's neck and Benjamin hugged him back, and they wept. Then he
hugged all his brothers and there was peace between them.
The news spread through Pharaoh's kingdom and it made Pharaoh and his
servants happy that Joseph's brothers were there. The Pharaoh told
Joseph to bring his father and all his family down to live in Egypt
and gave them all gifts, but Benjamin got the most. Joseph sent them
on their way and knew that the whole thing was an unusual and
emotional situation, so he told them not to be angry on the way.

When they got home and told Israel that Joseph was still alive, he
didn't believe them and his heart was heavy, but when he saw the
wagons that Joseph sent to bring him back, Israel's spirit revived
