Lecture 14 in my Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories lecture series. This lecture closes 2017, and the book of Genesis. In it, I present the story of Joseph who, as the wearer of the coat of many colors, is profoundly adaptable, courageous, adaptable, merciful and just. Even in slavery — even in prison — he comes out triumphant, because of the strength of his character and his wisdom. Betrayed by his brothers, he acts to strengthen his family; unjustly accused by the Pharaoh’s wife, he maintains his faith.

Joseph was the favourite. He circumvented the hierarchy among Jacob’s sons. There was no way this could end well. And yet. It did.
I love the podcasts, but I wish I could listen to them at various speeds. On YouTube I listen to the good doctor at 1.5x speed, and so when I hear him at actual speed it seems ponderous.
