Jacob favored Joseph above all his sons, and made him a coat of many colors. Joseph had dreams in which his brothers and parents bowed down to him, and when he told his brothers, they hated him. Plotting to kill him, they threw him into a pit and stained his coat of many colors in sheep’s blood. They then sold him to a caravan of Ishmaelite, who carried him down to Egypt and sold him to Potiphar, one of Pharaoh’s courtiers. Jacob bitterly mourned Joseph death. Falsely accused by Pothiphar’s wife, Joseph was thrown into prison where he became overseer of all prisoners, Pharaoh’s chief baker and cupbearer, told him their dreams, he predicted death for the one and freedom for the other. But the cupbearer forgot about Joseph when he regained his freedom.
