Jacob had 12 sons and Joseph was his favorite. Jacob gave Joseph a very
special coat to show how much he loved him. This made Joseph's brothers
jealous. One day Jacob sent Joseph to the field to check on his brothers. They
were still angry about his beautiful coat, so they threw Joseph into an empty
well. Then they dipped his special coat in goat's blood and took it to their
father, Jacob. He thought Joseph had been killed by a wild animal. His sons
did not tell him they had sold Joseph to some traders going to Egypt. When
Joseph was in Egypt, the king (called Pharaoh) had two dreams. He dreamed
about seven fat cows and seven skinny cows that came up out of the river. The
skinny cows ate the fat cows, but they were no bigger than before. Then he
dreamed about seven full heads of grain on one stalk and seven thin, scrawny
heads of grain. The thin heads ate the full heads. No one could explain the
king's dream, but God helped Joseph to understand the meaning of the dreams.
Joseph told the king, "There will be seven years of good crops. Then there
will be seven years of bad crops and hunger." Joseph told Pharaoh that he
should choose a wise person to oversee the people and save food for the years
of famine, or bad years when there would be no rain. Pharaoh chose the wisest
man he knew. He gave the job to Joseph!
