Joseph's Story -
Check out the
The Selling of Joseph:
As Joseph is sold, he must have been very confused, wondering where God was.
The buyer, like when buying a horse, camel or a sheep, must find out if the animal is healthy, has no disease or faults and has good teeth. Same with Joseph - a 17 year old boy! He would have been about the age of my students when his brothers did this to him!

His little brother Benjamin, now must stay as Joseph's 'slave'. Excellent planning by Joseph and a truly wonderful speech by Judah. (King David and Jesus Christ both come from the tribe of Judah!)
Although: realise that I am not trying to make important 'God-to-you' things rediculious!
My plan is to get the story across in a way that you might remember.
