Joseph and the Coat of Many Colors
Joseph and the coat of many colors is a story most, if not all, people who attended Sunday school are familiar with. But is it true? The purpose of this story in this series is to establish the fact that the Israelites actually lived in Egypt at one time. In order to accomplish this, we need to know who Joseph was and how he came to Egypt in the first place.
One of the more detailed accounts is found in the Holy Bible in Genesis beginning in chapter 36. It documents Jacob, one of the sons of Isaac and Rebecca, and also the grandson of Abraham, as Joseph’s father and Rachel (died from childbirth complications when bearing Benjamin) as his mother. Joseph also had eleven other brothers.
