Unit.2: Example of people who served in the Bible

Joseph (Gen.37:12-36)

Joseph was one of the twelve sons of Jacob. His father loved him more than his brothers. He was hated by his brothers because their father loved him more than all of   them and he always reports his brothers to his father.

Joseph was also a dreamer. He had two dreams which he told his brothers. The dreams signified that he would be over his brothers in Future Leaders (Joseph told his brother “Hear this dream which I have dreamt, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field and lo, my sheaf arose and stood upright and behold your sheaves  gathered round it and bowed down to my sheaf. He also dreamt another dream-behold the sun, the moon and eleven stars were bowing down to me”)This made them to hate him the more and planned to kill him but one of his brothers Reuben stopped them from killing him rather they sold him to Egyptian trader called Potiphar. In our next lesson, we shall see what happened to Joseph in Egypt.
