Joseph - King of Dreams

Synopsis: When Joseph receives a beautiful coat from his parents, his eleven brothers hate him even more, and are driven to sell him to desert merchants, who take him to Egypt. There he is made the servant of a wealthy Egyptian who misunderstands him, and has him thrown into prison. He shows his God-given gift by interpreting the dreams of two other prisoners. Eventually, the Pharaoh begins to be plagued by dreams, and sends for Joseph, who interprets them and saves Egypt in the process. He is made second in command to Pharaoh, and has most of Egypt's grain stored. Eventually his brothers arrive in Egypt to buy food because of famine, and he must forgive them. Then the dreams that had angered his brothers, were in reality prophecies that had come from God.

- They have their work and you yours.

- But why?

Because you do.

Because you're a miracle child.

For you things are different.

I don't want to be different.

I want to be like them.

Joseph, God has a plan

and a purpose for you.

- You're not like the rest of us.

- (Sighs)

I've worked this earth all my life,

just as my father and grandfather did

and your brothers will after me.

That won't be your future.

Jacob, even God

rested on the seventh day.

He'll find his future soon enough.

- Let him be with his brothers.

- Please?

(Sighs) Go on.


Be safe!

(Sheep bleating)

(Joseph) Judah! Simeon!

- Hmph! Look who's here.

- The miracle child.

What are you doing?

Don't you have some scrolls to read?

Here, let me do that.

Wait, wait!

You have to be very careful.

- You'll cut your hands on the fur(!)

- Get away!

- (All laughing)

- I... I just want to help.

Thanks to you, we'll have to

work an extra hour today.

You're tired

because you were out all night.

Why, you little sneak...

What do you know?


The women and the drinking...

- There's a lot Father doesn't know.

- You wouldn't?

He would, the brat.

- One word and I'll wring your neck.

- Stop it!

We should be happy for his help.

Maybe he can do your work, Simeon.

Somebody should.


And there is something Joseph can do.

- What's he doing?

- Shh!

While we round up the strays,

can you watch the herd?

- Of course.

- Good.

We'll be back soon. Let's go.

Maybe we should split up.

You go over there.

- I'll go this way.

- (Chuckles) Hey! What are you doing?


- (Bleats)

- (Laughs)

(Brothers laughing and chattering)

- Whoo-hoo!

- (Shouting)

- Get him.

- You're too heavy.

- (Laughing)

- (Sighs)
