Question description

please provide me details of your order.


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 or two from the Joseph story of
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.
