Joseph was Jacob’s son. One of twelve, and the firstborn of Rachel.
Because Joseph’s father, Jacob, loved Rachel so much Joseph became Jacob’s favorite son. Jacob made Joseph a striped coat as a sign of his love for his son Joseph.
When Joseph was a young man, he had dreams which he told to his brothers, and they understood the dreams to mean that he wanted to be in charge of them.
After a while, his brothers got so angry at him that they threw him into a pit. While he was in the pit a caravan passed by and they picked him out of the pit and carried him to Egypt to sell as a slave.
When Joseph was sold in Egypt, he became a slave to a very important Egyptian. Joseph was such a hard worker that his owner gave him more and more responsibility until Joseph was in charge of the man’s house.
The man’s wife told a lie about Joseph and Joseph was thrown into prison. He was in a prison with Pharaoh’s Butler and Pharaoh’s wine steward.
Joseph was summoned from prison to interpret Pharaoh’s dream. He became viceroy and helped bring his family to Egypt during a time of famine.
