An introduction and translation of Testament of Joseph, one of the Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs. It includes the motifs of prayer, penitence, the competition of ethnic groups, the role of women, and the construction of gender. The focus on moral endurance is so strong that this text becomes a transitional document to asceticism.
