Joseph and Jacob reuniting after 23 years

Jacob and Joseph reuniting after 23 years of separation.

"So what if I favored him, he meant more to me than my life; is that such a sin. You promise so much and then you take away even more, all I want is the life of the child by the only woman I truly loved. Do you hear me, give me back my son. JOSEPH!!!"
Jacob talking to God about Joseph[[Joseph|[src]]]

Jacob was the son of Isaac, the grandson of Abraham, and the father of Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Joseph, Benjamin and seven others. Jacob's favorite son was Joseph, which he showed by giving Joseph a coat of many colors. 9 of Jacob's other sons planned on killing Joseph, but Reuben, Jacob's oldest son, told his brothers to just throw him in a pit. Afterwards Joseph was sold into slavery by his brothers. Jacob was told that a mountain lion killed his son. He then began favoring his other son Benjamin, who was the only other son of Jacob's that was a full brother of Joseph. 23 years after Joseph was sold into slavery, Jacob and Joseph reunited in Egypt.
