Joseph’s mother had already died (Gen. 35:19) when Joseph received the dream in Gen. 37:9-11. Joseph’s other dream (in Gen. 37:5-8) came true (Gen. 42:6), so it seems likely that this dream — including the part about his mother bowing down to him — will also come true. If this is so, it means the dream will be fulfilled in the Kingdom of God, when Jesus returns and raises the dead (including Joseph, his brothers, and his parents) to life again (1Thess. 4:13-16).
