Panel 25 - Jospeph's brothers return home to fetch their father, Jacob (1st panel of 3)

 © Stuart Whatling, 2008

After Joseph reveals his identity and is reconciled with his brothers (Gen.45), he sends them home to fetch their father and families to Egypt, where Pharaoh has promised them land and food. In this panel, the foremost of the brothers kneels before his father and gestures back to where the other brothers are following behind him in panels 27 & 26.
