Probably the two most important statements that are made about Joseph’s character are made in Genesis chapter 39. On three occasions in this passage, the statement is made that “the Lord was with Joseph.” In Acts chapter 7, Stephen, one of the first deacons, said this,
“And the patriarchs, moved with envy, sold Joseph into Egypt: but God was with him,”
In Genesis 39:3 the statement is made that Joseph’s master “saw that the Lord was with Joseph.” I believe those two statements say more about Joseph than anything else that we can read about Joseph.
