Joseph Saga – Part One

In this week’s teaching, Ross begins his series on the Joseph Saga. The story of Joseph is told in the final four Torah portions of the book of Genesis. Joseph is portrayed as the favored son of Jacob, born to his favorite wife Rachel. Through a series of events, Joseph is sold into slavery by his brothers who devise a plot that convinces his father that he is dead. Joseph is taken to Egypt where he once again ends up through circumstances beyond his control in a prison house. Ross shows through the course of this teaching that these stories, while presenting sacred history, could very well provide insights into the future fulfillment of prophecies related to Joseph’s latter day descendants. What can we learn from the life of the dream master?
