Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his sons, because he was the son of his old age; and he made him a varicolored tunic. His brothers saw that their father loved him more than all his brothers; and so they hated him and could not speak to him on friendly terms. Genesis 37:3-4 (NASB) – Slide 1

Then Joseph had a dream, and when he told it to his brothers, they hated him even more. He said to them, ‘Please listen to this dream which I have had; for behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and lo, my sheaf rose up and also stood erect; and behold, your sheaves gathered around and bowed down to my sheaf.’  <br/>Then his brothers said to him, ‘Are you actually going to reign over us? Or are you really going to rule over us?’ So they hated him even more for his dreams and for his words. Genesis 37:5-6 (NASB) – Slide 2

Now he had still another dream, and related it to his brothers, and said, ‘Lo, I have had still another dream; and behold, the sun and the moon and eleven stars were bowing down to me.” He related it to his father and to his brothers; and his father rebuked him...’ Genesis 37:9-10a (NASB) – Slide 3

Joseph’s brothers pastured the flocks in Shechem. So Israel told Joseph, ‘... I will send you to them.' And he said to him, 'I will go.' Then he said to him, ‘Go now and see about the welfare of your brothers and the welfare of the flock, and bring word back to me.’ Genesis 37:13b-14a (NASB) – Slide 4

When they saw him from a distance and before he came close to them, they plotted against him to put him to death. They said to one another, ‘Here comes this dreamer! Now then, come and let us kill him and throw him into one of the pits ...’ Genesis 37:18-20a (NASB) – Slide 5

Judah said to his brothers, ‘What profit is it for us to kill our brother and cover up his blood? Come and let us sell him to the Ishmaelites and not lay our hands on him, for he is our brother, our own flesh.’ And his brothers listened to him. <br/>Some Midianite traders passed by, so they pulled him up and lifted Joseph out of the pit, and sold him to the Ishmaelites for twenty shekels of silver. Thus they brought Joseph into Egypt. Genesis 37: 26-28 (NASB) – Slide 6

So they took Joseph’s tunic, and slaughtered a male goat and dipped the tunic in the blood; and they sent the multi-colored tunic and brought it to their father and said, ‘We found this; please examine it to see whether it is your son’s tunic or not.’ Genesis 37:31-32 (NASB) – Slide 7

Then he examined it and said, ‘It is my son’s tunic. A wild beast has devoured him; Joseph has surely been torn to pieces!’ So Jacob tore his clothes, and put sackcloth on his loins and mourned for his son many days. Genesis 37:33-34 (NASB) – Slide 8
