Acts 7:13-16 King James Version (KJV)
13 And at the second time Joseph was made known to his brethren; and Joseph's kindred was made known unto Pharaoh.
14 Then sent Joseph, and called his father Jacob to him, and all his kindred, threescore and fifteen souls.
15 So Jacob went down into Egypt, and died, he, and our fathers,
16 And were carried over into Sychem, and laid in the sepulchre that Abraham bought for a sum of money of the sons of Emmor the father of Sychem.

Acts 7:13-16 Amplified Bible (AMP)

13 And on the second visit Joseph identified himself to his brothers, and Joseph’s family and background were revealed to Pharaoh. 14 Then Joseph sent and invited Jacob his father and all his relatives to come to him, seventy-five persons in all. 15 And Jacob (Israel) went down into Egypt, and there he died, as did our fathers; 16 and [from Egypt] their bodies were taken back to Shechem and placed in the tomb which Abraham had purchased for a sum of money from the sons of Hamor in Shechem.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

13 This was when they ran out of food again, they had to leave their brother behind and this time on returning they had to bring their youngest brother which their father Jacob was against but they needed food so he had no choose. Joseph ends up telling them who he is and they become scared because of what they did to him but Joseph shows them love.

14-15 Jacob would come once he learned that Joseph was in Egypt as well as his grandchildren. They would spend the rest of their lives in Egypt living well off because of Joseph’s position.

16 They were buried in the tomb that Abraham had bought for Sarah; Joseph would not be put there until the time of the Exodus because of him being royalty.
