The pharoah of Egypt had a vision of seven years of harvest and seven years of famine that was interpreted by Joseph and led to Joseph being made second in command of Egypt. During the seven years of harvest they gathered a surplus, so that they would have food to distribute to everybody when the seven years of famine showed up. Joseph’s ten brothers went to get food from Egypt and Joseph had them bring their youngest brother named Benjamin with them during their next trip. They came back with Benjamin, had a feast and got plenty of supplies, but Joseph had his royal cup put into the sack of Benjamin, so that Benjamin was kept with him in Egypt, which made Jacob very distraught when he heard about this. The ten brothers went to get Benjamin and Joseph then made himself known to them and they had a good reunion as a family.
