Lets Take Care Of Joseph
Joseph was loved so much that it caused other children to be jealous and treat them him harshly. This hatred became worse when he talked about his dream of them bowing down to him.
When Israel gifted Joseph with a magnificent coat, the jealousy reached such a point that the brothers began plotting to rid themselves of Joseph.
His brother plotted against him as soon as they saw the coat. The brothers did not have to wait long for their chance to harm Joseph.
Israel asked Joseph to travel to where they were herding his sheep and check to ensure that all was well. Joseph agreed to comply with his father’s wishes and traveled in search of his brothers.
They decided to seize Joseph and throw him into an empty cistern, tear up his coat, and fabricate a story to tell their father about the demise of his son. The brothers succeeded in capturing Joseph and threw him into the cistern.
