The Story of a Boy's Coat
Joseph was a small boy there were ten older brothers in his home. These
brothers were sometimes unkind to Joseph. They were sometimes untrue to
their father, Jacob. They were not good brothers.
Joseph loved his father and obeyed him. He often ran errands and did other
work for him. He was always careful to tell the truth.
Joseph was kind and obedient, his father planned a surprise for him. He
made a pretty coat of many different colors. When the coat was finished he
called Joseph and showed it to him. "This beautiful coat shall be
yours," he said.
day Joseph's father sent him out to the field where his brothers were at
work. When they saw him coming, they planned to hurt him. They caught him
roughly and tore off the pretty coat. Then they put him down into a deep
hole. Afterwards they took him out of the hole and sent him to a strange,
far-away land. Then they took his pretty coat home to their father.
"We found this lying in the field," they said. This was untrue,
and God was displeased with them. Their father felt very unhappy; he
believed Joseph was dead.
