Joseph had three brothers, and they always were causing mischief or trouble. One day they got jealous of Joseph, because Joseph had gotten a new coat from their father, and also due to the fact that Joseph dreamt wonderful, prophetic things. Thinks that they didn't like.
Joseph and His Brothers
Joseph was a good man, and always was honest with his father, but the brothers were not as good-hearted. They seized Joseph out of jealousy and sold him to Egyptian merchants as a slave, bringing back a story of how he was attacked by a savage beast to their father, despite being the cause of his disappearance themselves.
He was thrown into prison for two years, where his vivid dreams and good reputation as a upstanding slave lead the wardens to trust him, and put him in-charge of the whole prison. The Egyptian Pharaoh recognised how useful he would be as a advisor, and prophet after hearing about his dreams, so he took Joseph out of prison.
The Pharaoh asked of him, " Can you understand dreams? " Joseph told the Pharaoh that God told him in his dreams that there would be seven years of famine, and seven years of plenty. The Pharaoh said this was the most plausible explanation for the dreams and made him ruler of all the lands, second only to the throne.
The seven years of plenty came, and Joseph stocked up all the food in the cities, for he knew the famine would come. And it did. Everybody bought grain from Egypt, for everyone suffered; including Josephs family. His Father ordered the brothers to head to the capital city of Egypt and buy grain or else they would starve. They did not know it was Joseph who they would be bargaining grain for.
They arrived at the throne room, and asked the Pharaohs wise assistant, who is Joseph secretly, for grain. Then, Joseph revealed himself in their plight, and while they were scared in the throne room, he said there was no need to be afraid; for he forgives them. They then lived with Joseph in Egypt, given plenty, and lived fruitful lives under Gods light.
