The story of Joseph is one that describes God’s interaction in a way that is as intimate and as humanly sensitive as few stories in the Bible. However, at the same time, this narrative has features in it that sound so familiar and so real that most of it could have easily happened in our own day! So, let us immediately dig into this narrative and see why Scripture has dedicated such a large block of content to Joseph.
