The story of Joseph extends core narrative of the journey of the People of God from the beginning of "the Great Family" to the Exodus. Why did the People of God move to Egypt and become slaves? It was because of a famine in their land. There was also famine in the land of Egypt, but they had stored up grain during the good years so there was food there. Why did they store the grain?
Information on changes: Dr. Cheryl Minor writes, "Instead of a plastic container of coins for when Joseph is sold, the storyteller pours some coins out of a leather pouch".
