Pray for Peace in your family!

Joseph is one of twelve brothers. He is his father's favourite, and his brothers are jealous of him; he also has prophetic dreams, which sound to them like boasting.

They plan to kill him, but instead at the last minute he is sold into slavery in Egypt. There his masters find him invaluable, and he rises to be adviser to Pharaoh himself. This means he is able to give his brothers food when famine comes; and their reconciliation brings safety to the whole people of Israel.
