Episode 4

This is the factual account of the son of a successful Hebrew rancher in Canaan (today’s Israel).  To his family’s disgust, young Joseph shares with them his dreams that some day he’ll rule over his parents and eleven brothers.  Having had enough of his arrogance, the boys sell him to a caravan of Arabian merchants en route to Egypt.  There he, at 17, is sold as a slave to Potiphar, captain of Pharaoh’s palace guard.  When he shuns the sexual moves of his boss’ wife, she has him jailed.
