Old Testament: Joseph
Details and Events in the Story of Joseph.

A Brief Overview Of Joseph The story of Joseph is among those that are most favored in the Bible. As Jacob grew older, ten of his sons got jealous of their younger brother, Joseph, because Jacob adored Joseph. Joseph was receiving revelations and dreams at a very young age and dreamed they would all bow down to him someday.

Joseph Named A Ruler In Egypt Joseph was faithful to God and became a main ruler in Egypt: Gen 41:39-44 Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, "Inasmuch as God has shown you all this, there is no one as discerning and wise as you. "You shall be over my house, and all my people shall be ruled according to your word; only in regard to the throne will I be greater than you." And Pharaoh said to Joseph, "See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt." Then Pharaoh took his signet ring off his hand and put it on Joseph`s hand . . ."

Joseph Sold To A Caravan His 10 brothers got so mad that they sold him to a caravan going to Egypt and then told their father that he was dead.

Josephs 10 Brothers Come To Egypt Just as the dream had foretold, a famine came throughout the world and in the land of Canaan it was very severe so Joseph`s 10 brothers came to Egypt in search of food. They all bowed down to him, and after testing them, Joseph revealed to them his true identity, and forgave them. God saved the whole family from the famine and they came down to live in Egypt.

Pharaohs Dream Interpreted Joseph interpreted Pharaoh`s dreams by the Holy Spirit: Gen 41:15-16 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, "I have dreamed a dream, and there is no one who can interpret it. But I have heard it said of you that you can understand a dream, to interpret it." So Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, "It is not in me; God will give Pharaoh an answer of peace."
