Genesis as Dialogue

Thomas L. Brodie

Oxford University Press

The account of Joseph's early experience in Egypt falls easily into two complementary chapters: his resistance to seduction, leading to his imprisonment (Genesis 39); and his interpretation of dreams, leaving him still in prison, forgotten (Genesis 40). Joseph emerges as close to God, with integrity and prophetic wisdom.
