Joseph’s brothers go back to Egypt
(from Genesis chapter 43)




Jacob and his sons ate all the food.

Then Jacob said,

“Go back to Egypt and get some more food.”

Judah said,

“The man in Egypt told us to bring Benjamin with us.

I will keep him safe.” Jacob agreed.

He prayed God would keep all his sons safe.


The brothers went to Egypt.  They took presents.

Joseph saw then coming.  He cooked a meal. 

Joseph’s servant brought them to his house. 

They were afraid.  They thought they would be put in prison.

They told the servant about the money.

They said they had brought it back.

They had brought presents as well.

The servant told them not to be afraid.

He said God was with them.

Joseph came home.  He asked how they were.

He asked how their father was.  He saw Benjamin.

They all ate the meal. 

Benjamin got more than the others.
