Bible Stories, 1987

(Continued from 1986)

The latest retelling of the story of "Joseph" continues.  This time around, they skipped the reason Joseph wound up in an Egyptian prison (his master's wife had a thing for him, he turned her down, and she lied to her husband about him).

I find it interesting that while Reuben was the one who didn't want to kill Joseph earlier, it was Benjamin that their father Jacob wanted kept safe.  Meanwhile, I wonder, did any of them worry about Simeon, who was arrested and held captive-- possibly for MONTHS-- while, back home, they ate all they had bought? (Maybe Jacob didn't care that much about Simeon?)  What a family.

Once again, the story of "Joseph" leads into the story of "Moses". This marked the 7th time the BOYS' LIFE series would cover this material.

Frank Bolle's only signature appears 3 times this year-- February, March & September.
