Potiphar was impressed and put Joseph in charge of his whole household and all he owned. – Slide 3

‘Come to bed with me!’ she demanded. Joseph refused. ‘Potiphar trusts me with everything, including you. How could I do such a wicked thing and sin against God?’ – Slide 6
Potiphar’s wife did not give up. Every day she spoke to Joseph but he refused to have an affair with her. He even took steps to avoid going near her. – Slide 7
