The Story of Jacob and Joseph

Description:

Brother against brother in a classic tale of envy and greed.

The classic story of two brothers who turn against one another out of selfish greed. Colleen 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, Jacob 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 reconciliation 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 thier cruelty is a lesson in morality that will live forever.

We thought Jacob and Joseph were excellent representations of the Bible account of their lives. It emphasized some points that other accounts did not. It was well worth watching!

4 of 5 Stars! The Story of Jacob and Joseph - DVDAngela M L, 08/19/2014
the DVD of "the story of Jacob and Joseph" was very Good and true story about Jacob and his twelve tribes. The other 10 half siblings of Joseph were jealous of him because Father Jacob really loved him more than other 1/2 siblings. However Joseph as a Governor of Egypt had forgiven them what they had done wrong to him.

I'm glad that the DVD of the "Story of Jacob and Joseph" had been set up Subtitles and Closed Captioned for deaf and foreigners in USA.

thanks,

Angela

Decent movie. Pretty close to the Biblical accounts, but left out some details. Good overview though.
