Here is the linage from Noah to Rachel to Joseph
(Gen 5:28 KJV)  And Lamech lived an hundred eighty and two years, and begat a son:
(Gen 5:29 KJV)  And he called his name Noah
(Gen 5:32 KJV)  And Noah was five hundred years old: and Noah begat Shem
(Gen 10:21 KJV)  Unto Shem also, the father of all the children of Eber
(Gen 10:25 KJV)  And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg;
(Gen 11:18 KJV)  And Peleg lived thirty years, and begat Reu:
(Gen 11:20 KJV)  And Reu lived two and thirty years, and begat Serug:
(Gen 11:22 KJV)  And Serug lived thirty years, and begat Nahor:
(Gen 22:20 KJV)  And it came to pass after these things, that it was told Abraham, saying, Behold, Milcah, she hath also born children unto thy brother Nahor;
(Gen 22:21 KJV)  Huz his firstborn, and Buz his brother, and Kemuel the father of Aram,
(Gen 22:22 KJV)  And Chesed, and Hazo, and Pildash, and Jidlaph, and Bethuel.
(Gen 22:23 KJV)  And Bethuel begat Rebekah
(Gen 24:29 KJV)  And Rebekah had a brother, and his name was Laban.
(Gen 29:16 KJV)  And Laban had two daughters.,.and the name of the younger was Rachel
(Gen 30:25 KJV)  And it came to pass, when Rachel had born Joseph.
And Joseph is where I begin this unfolding story---

I begin this essay with Joseph because this is where it all began.


This is the wiki version of Joseph and follow with biblical accounts.


Joseph, sold into slavery by his brothers, is taken to Egypt where he is sold to Potiphar as a household slave. Potiphar makes Joseph the head of his household, but Potiphar's wife, furious at Joseph for resisting her attempts to seduce him into sleeping with her, accuses him falsely of attempting to rape her. Potiphar casts Joseph into prison, where he comes to the notice of Pharaoh through his ability to interpret the dreams of other prisoners.

Potiphar's wife is not named in either the Yahwist or Elohist stories. The mediaeval Sefer HaYashar, a commentary on the Torah, gives it as Zuleika, as does the Persian poem called Yusuf and Zulaikha (from Jami's Haft Awrang ("Seven thrones")). For more on the nameless in the Holy Bible, please see List of names for the Biblical nameless.


It is difficult to place Potiphar or Joseph accurately to a particular pharaoh or time period. On the Jewish calendar, Joseph was purchased in the year 2216, which is 1544 BCE, at the end of the Second Intermediate Period or very beginning of the New Kingdom.

According to the documentary hypothesis, the story of Potiphar and his wife derives from the Yahwist source, and stands in the same place that the stories of the butler and the baker and Pharaoh's dreams stand in the Elohist text.

According to Dr G.J. Wenham (IVP New Bible Commentary) execution was normal for rape cases, so Potiphar may have had doubts about his wife`s story.
