Incidents depicted in the life of Joseph of Canaan include: the conspiracy of his brothers to sell him into slavery and strip him of the coat of many colors given to him by his father Jacob; Jacob's grief upon seeing the torn, bloody coat and hearing from the brothers that Joseph died under a lion's claw; Joseph's hardships as a slave; his arrival in Egypt; his life as a slave in the house of Potiphar, an Egyptian official, whose wife Zelikah tries to seduce Joseph and then accuses him of molesting her; his imprisonment; his prophecy, which comes true, telling of life for one fellow prisoner and death for another; his interpretation for the Pharoah of the dream of the seven lean and seven fat kine; the seven years of famine in Egypt; and the reconciliation with Joseph's father, brothers, their wives, and children in Egypt.
