Unexpected Reunion

Genesis 43-45 tells us that Israel ‘s country is also suffering famine.  He hears that there is plenty of grain for sale in Egypt; so, he sends his sons, all, that is, except Benjamin, his youngest son, of whom he cannot bear to risk loss.    Here is that story in  “pictures.”

See http://www.wga.hu/frames-e.html?/html/g/ghiberti/paradiso/2joseph.html for the source of the above photograph of the gilded bronze panel and a brief description.   You will notice, again, Ghiberti’s representation of several separate scenes in one panel, thereby representing at once the whole story.
