Famous Joseph's Dreams

Joseph's Dream (Old TestamentGen. 37:311) An elderly man named Israel's youngest son Joseph (for whom he made a coat of many colors), who was the object of much sibling rivalry. His brothers' jealousy grew when he reported his dream to them: "We were binding sheaves in the field, and lo, my sheaf arose, and also stood upright, and behold, your sheaves stood round about, and made obeisance to my sheaf." The brothers were enraged at the thought of Joseph reigning over them. When a second dream, in which the sun, moon, and stars, too, "made obeisance" to him, even Israel looked askance. (The twentieth-century musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat was inspired by this Bible story.)
