I understand why Joseph’s brothers threw him into the pit. After all, He was the son Jacob loved more than any of his other sons. Imagine if you were one of his siblings. Dad gives Joseph a pretty coat of many colors so he could stand out from you and the rest of the siblings. You are stuck wearing old, common clothes, and this boy gets the nicest coat money can buy. Then, Joseph runs off and tattles to dad because he didn’t approve of your work in the field. Even worse, Joseph has a dream he would reign over the family and has the audacity to tell you and the rest that you would be his servants. It is no surprise Joseph ended up in the pit.
