What a fantastic and gripping story. I feel certain there's a modern day film to be made; arrogant but gifted step sibling is got rid of. he, though flawed, is full of integrity and will not succomb to the advances of the bosses wife.gets put away but rises to position and power even in prison. attributes his gifts to God alone (arrogance gone? character flourishing alongside gifting? fellow prisoner released, massively in J's debt: intake of breath as he is forgotten by said prisoner and left in prison 2 more years. becomes a wiser and humbler man: opportunity comes - uses his gifts to serve the prime minister. not seeking position or power, but is given position and influence. 'Plays' his family when they need what he has...father expiring from grief, but J now characterised, not by hatred or need for revenge, but by endless weeping:I always like a good cry at the end of a film.

Have you seen the Donny Osmond film of the musical? :) Cheesy but great!

As we had communion on Sunday, I reflected on the dreams of Joseph’s fellow prisoners and their foretelling of Jesus’s death that we remember when we break bread and drink wine.
The butler dreamt of three branches of vine. Jesus, part of the Trinity said ‘I am the Vine’. The grapes were pressed and poured out like the life of Jesus for us.
The baker dreamt of three baskets of bread. 3 days after the dreams were interpreted, the baker was killed on a tree and the butler was restored to be Pharaoh’s cup bearer. Jesus was hung on a cross, was in a grave for 3 days and now sits at God’s right hand.
