The life story of Joseph

Joseph was the 11th son of Jacob, and his story is found in Genesis  37–50. As a 17-year-old shepherd, Joseph is something of a tattle-tale, bringing  a bad report about his brothers to their father (Genesis  37:2). This behavior, combined with Jacob’s overt favoritism towards Joseph,  causes his older brothers to resent him to the point of hatred (37:3-4). Because  of Jacob’s open love for Joseph, his favoritism was begrudged by his other sons.  And when Jacob presented Joseph with a highly decorated coat, he was hated and  resented by his brothers all the more.

Now see the rest of his amazing story.
