The story of Joseph and his remarkable life, is recorded in the Holy Bible, Old Testament, Genesis chapters 37-50. The story is one of how God used a spoiled teenager and through a series miraculous events, molded him into the person who saved generations of people from starvation. The story unfolds like this:
Joseph was Jacob’s favorite son whom he lavished over. He was the 2nd youngest son of Jacob and his favorite wife, Rachel. Jacob’s favored status bestowed on Joseph created jealousy then resentment from his 10 older brothers. When he joined his brothers at the age of 17 to become a shepherd like his brothers, they were not happy.
This relationship was compounded when Joseph began to tell his brothers about his dreams which, affirmed their fears that he aspired to rule over them. On one occasion, Joseph told them that he had dreamed he had been binding sheaves in the field, together with them, and that their sheaves had suddenly bowed before his own. On another occasion, Joseph told his brothers of having a dream in which the sun and the moon and eleven stars had paid their respects to him. At this point, the brothers had determined to rid themselves of Joseph.
One day Joseph was at home with his father, while his brothers were with the flocks nearby. Having not heard from the brothers, Jacob sent Joseph to find them and bring word from them which he did. From a distance, the brothers saw him approach and found their opportunity to get rid of Joseph. At first, they threw him into a pit, but then sold him into slavery to a group of merchants passing through the area, thinking they would never hear from him again.
They covered their deed by lying to their father Jacob, saying he was killed by an animal. For many year’s Jacob mourned the loss of Joseph and refused to be consoled. Thus, begins one of the most remarkable stories in history.
