פרשת ויגש

ספר בראשית

"And he went up"

After Yehudah offers to become Yosef's slave in Binyamin's place, Yosef reveals himself to the brothers and asks if their father is alive. They feel remorse and shame, but Yosef assures that it was the Lord who sent him to Egypt, so that he could save his family and the entire region from famine. The brothers return to Ken‘an to give Y‘aqov the good news and take him to Egypt, where he is reunited with his son after 22 years. Yosef gives them the fertile land of Goshen and there they prosper.
