“Joseph gave the wagons according to Pharaoh’s instructions, and he also provided them with food for the journey…. Joseph sent the following to his father: ten male donkeys carrying Egypt’s finest products, and ten female donkeys carrying grain, bread and food for his father’s journey.” (Genesis 45:21–23)
“And when he saw the wagons which Joseph had sent to transport him, the spirit of Jacob their father was revived.” (Genesis 45:27)

Questions: Why do you think that Joseph sent wagons to his father instead of going himself? Why do you think that Jacob’s spirit was revived at the sight of the wagons?

Ideas: Arrange slices of citrus, avocado, red pepper or other vegetables on a plate in the shape of a wagon wheel. Make little wagons out of celery, carrots, peanut butter and raisins (cut a small section of celery, fill with peanut butter, use two round carrot slices for wheels and decorate with raisins). Serve round cookies for dessert, and don’t forget some good-quality aged wine!
