Proper 14, Year A, Old Testament Lesson
Scripture: Genesis 37:1-4, 12-28
We continue the saga of Jacob’s family today with the story of Joseph and his brothers. There was much jealousy among the brothers because of who their mothers were and their place in the family. Joseph’s brothers were very jealous of him did not approve of his dreams that tell of his greatness (which we don’t read today, but you could paraphrase for the children.) Joseph’s brothers decide to sell him rather than kill him to get rid of him.
