Joseph sold into slavery

About 1910 BC (About 3900 years ago)

Joseph's brothers are jealous of Joseph, so they sell him into slavery. Joseph ends up in Egypt, where he rises to power as a trusted assistant of a pharaoh. His father and his brothers later leave Canaan, because of a famine, and move to Egypt, where they are saved by Joseph. Joseph and his brothers later become the fathers of the 12 Tribes of Israel.
