A dysfunctional family settles in Canaan with the ancient patriarch, Jacob, in charge.
The next-to-youngest son, Joseph, gives everyone fits over his outlandish dreams-which are actually prophecies. This causes his ten older brothers to hate him and, ultimately, sell him as to some traders passing by.
As a young slave in Egypt, Joseph's firm faith in his father's God, Jehovah, lends him courage, strength, and wisdom. Although experiencing many unfair events, he still climbs to the top and becomes second in command in Egypt. Here he predicts a famine, prepares for it, and saves this world power and his family-who eventually are brought to live in Egypt under Joseph's protection.
Joseph dies, the obliging Pharaoh dies, and other rulers then come into power who hate the foreign Hebrews and turn them into slaves.
Four centuries of abject slavery, and Joseph's predictions finally come true when an adopted Hebrew becomes a Pharaoh, is banished, then returns as Moses . . . and you know the rest of the story.
