The famine continues and Jacob’s family is in dire straites. They don’t want to go back lest they loose Benjamin too. Judah convinces Jacob/Israel that they either die from lack of food, or they take their chances and buy food from Egypt. Jacob/Israel agrees. They took double the money – to pay back what they originally had tried to pay before plus more to pay for more corn plus a gift of fruit for Joseph. Joseph entertains them at his house and is very excited to see Benjamin, but he doesn’t let on.
In other words:The sons of Israel are starving so they go back to Joseph and ask for a little bit more.
(Genesis 43: 27-31) Joseph is made very human here. He is very excited to see his younger brother and asks about his dad, who he clearly misses.
That because Joseph is Jewish, he is not allowed to eat with the Egyptians who work for him because that is an abomination for the Egyptians. (Genesis 43:32)
Your family matters. Don’t become estranged from them (Genesis 43:27)
