Be a witness for God with your life like Joseph was:

 We who are Christians are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). _________

A Story as Timeless as the Bible Itself

The classic story of two brothers who turn against one another out of selfish greed.  

Collen Dewhurst stars as Rebekah, who gives birth to twin boys, Esau and Jacob.  

Though Esau is the first-born and entitled to his family's fortune, Jabob is Rebekah's favorite.  

Through a cunning and devious scheme, Rebekah helps steal Esau's birthright from his aging father, Isaac.  

The deception tears the family apart for twenty years, but just as reconcilation brings Jacob and Esau together, a new generation of envy is born.

Jacob's sons, who envy their brother Joseph, sell him as a slave to a passing caravan.  Joseph is taken in chains to Egypt, but he astonishes all with his talents and becomes the Pharaoh's chief advisor.  

But Joseph cannot forget his family, and his forgiveness of their cruelty is a lesson in morality that will live forever. ___________________________

Our Comments:

This film is all right, though a little dated (1975), but much better are the two TNT Bible Series Films:
