Joseph PT2: Prisioner to 2nd In Command in Egypt

In a dramatic turn of events, Joseph is transported from prison to become the second in command of Egypt. The events that led to this change in Joseph’s destiny have to do with the cupbearer who, when he hears that Pharaoh has had a dream which the wise men of his household cannot interpret, remembers how Joseph interpreted his own dream while he was in prison. Joseph gives the praise to God. He says he can’t interpret the dream but God can. He communicates this fact to Pharaoh who, in turn, invites Joseph into his palace and asks him to interpret his dream. Pharaoh is so happy he elevates Joseph to the highest position in the kingdom.
