i need 300 words

religion is judaism

1. Read Genesis chapters 37 – 47 (you may skip Chap 38, which is tangential)

As you read, look for Motifs we have seen from earlier events in Genesis

*Motif – a recurring theme in the text

Write an example for each motif listed below from the Joseph story.

Garment motif

Sibling Rivalry motif

Deception motif

2. Watch these two sequences from the musical ‘Joseph and His Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’ by Andrew Lloyd Weber

Compare this modern day Midrash on the story with the Text in Genesis (through close up Text Detective reading)

In both scenes, what ways does Weber alter the text, to create this more contemporary telling of the tale? Note details for each.

Of course you are welcome to watch the whole Musical if you are so inclined (approx. one hour)
