Storyline

Joseph, son of Israel (Jacob) and Rachel, lived in the land of Canaan with eleven brothers and one sister. He was Rachel's firstborn and Israel's eleventh son. Of all the sons, Joseph was loved by his father the most. Israel even arrayed Joseph with a "long coat of many colors".[1] Israel's favoritism toward Joseph caused his half brothers to hate him, and when Joseph was seventeen years old he had two dreams that made his brothers plot his demise. In the first dream, Joseph and his brothers gathered bundles of grain. Then, all of the grain bundles that had been prepared by the brothers gathered around Joseph's bundle and bowed down to it. In the second dream, the sun (father), the moon (mother) and eleven stars (brothers) bowed down to Joseph himself. When he told these two dreams to his brothers, they despised him for the implications that the family would be bowing down to Joseph. They became jealous that their father would even ponder over Joseph's words concerning these dreams. (... Written by Vivian de Oliveira

Marvelous example of a Biblical Series
24 September 2013 | by jackiebeSee all my reviews

It is a great series, because (1) It brings life to the Biblical main story, as recorded in the Bible: not changing order of the events, nor the (acting) motives of the characters. (2) The author provides several interesting subplots carefully detailed, without distorting the main message of the story: the meaning of true love and family ties. Several subplots are not in the Biblical text but complement the story so wonderfully that do not bother the viewers at all. Watching it brought motivation to read (refresh) the text of the Scripture (Book of Genesis Chapters 37 to 50), to compare and confirm the real facts, as well as the fictional parts of the story.
