Storyline

Joseph, the favorite son of Jacob, angered his brothers when he told them that in a dream he saw himself made ruler over them. They went to feed their flocks in Dothan, where Joseph found them. And when they saw him, they conspired against him and cast him into a pit. But Judah, seeing a caravan approaching, persuaded his brothers to sell him to the Ishmaelites, who took him down to Egypt.
