Joseph means in the bible: 1 Son of Rachel: Jacob’s second marriage Gen. His life story is detailed in Genesis 37-50. This story has a lot to teach us about the Lord’s discipline and how he rewards those who obey him. Joseph’s story is also a reminder of God’s faithfulness in preserving his people. Joseph’s bravery in resisting Potiphar’s temptations is an unmatched example of faith and chastity. He protected himself by believing, which he stated in Gen. 39:9. Joseph is only mentioned once in the New Testament Heb. 11.21-22 as an example for faith.
