In the Bible, Benjamin was the youngest son of the Jewish patriarch Jacob. When Jacob's sons encountered their long-lost brother Joseph in Egypt, where he had become a high official, they failed to recognize him, but Joseph generously entertained them….And he took and sent messes [servings of food] unto them from before him….but Benjamin's mess was five times so much as any of their's….(Genesis 43 : 34).
