Recalling that the biblical Joseph was sold into servitude in Pharaoh’s house and that, following his time in prison, he returns to servitude. He is exalted, has an important and powerful place in the administration, marries and has children; and he eventually reconciles with his family of origin. But he remains in servitude. And that is where we leave Joseph, as Genesis closes and leads toward the Exodus.
