Bible Reference & Cartoon Description

Genesis 37:5-8 (NLT)
5 One night Joseph had a dream, and when he told his brothers about it, they hated him more than ever. 6 “Listen to this dream,” he said. 7 “We were out in the field, tying up bundles of grain. Suddenly my bundle stood up, and your bundles all gathered around and bowed low before mine!”
8 His brothers responded, “So you think you will be our king, do you? Do you actually think you will reign over us?” And they hated him all the more because of his dreams and the way he talked about them.


Although the dreams took place at night, I imagine Joseph told his father and brothers about them in the morning, so I’ve set this scene at that time.

This scene is set outside, with weak sunlight coming from above & to the left, casting shadows to the right of figures & objects.

From left to right: Joseph, Naphtali, Zebulun, Simion & Levi.

This scene shows Joseph telling four of his 11 brothers about his first dream, involving his brother’s wheat sheafs (bundles) bowing down to his. For some reason Joseph didn’t seem to understand that telling his brothers about his dream would turn them against him. Perhaps he was just immature, & didn’t appreciate the negative effect his revelation would have on his siblings.

The colours for the various characters in this scene were established in earlier cartoons, principally Genesis 37 – Joseph’s Dreams – Scene 02 – The coat of many colour.

Bible Doctrine Notes
37:5-11 MIRACLE, Nature (2.23A)

Joseph’s whole life bears witness to God’s providential care. Joseph’s dreams and ability to accurately interpret them showed him to be God’s revealer, yet few of his wise actions were supernatural, rather they involved the natural world. Even so, God used Joseph to achieve His purpose.
