We see here how God would use a great famine to reconcile the family of Jacob. Joseph forces his brothers to face the possibility of death, torture and slavery. This kindles their desire to protect Benjamin and their father. Joseph has changed and grown as well during the time away from them but is still overcome with emotion at their coming. Over the next 400 years God would use Egypt to build a 70 person family into a nation.
