Synopsis. Amenhotep holds a public ceremony to promote Joseph to one of the highest positions in the land, and Joseph tells the people his plans for getting through the upcoming seven years of famine. The priests of Amon try to sow seeds of doubt in the crowd, but every time they raise a question about Joseph’s plans, Joseph happens to say something that answers their question. Later, Joseph organizes a team of assistants that includes his former prisonmates, his fellow ex-slave Nemisabu, and Malek, the Ishmaelite who sold him to Potiphar nearly twenty years earlier. Potiphar’s health is failing, and the priests convince the queen mother Tiye to tell her son that an officer named Horenhob should get Potiphar’s job if and when he passes away.
