The life of Joseph is the exquisite story of one man who, though deeply wronged, rose from the darkest of pits to vice-regal power. His life holds a special charm, not only for its intrinsic beauty but also because of its vivid foreshadowing of the life of Jesus Christ. There are scenes in Joseph's life that provide a stunning rehearsal of the greatest drama ever enacted among men: He who was cast into the pit of death now sits at the right hand of God, a Prince and Savior.
