Look up Genesis 37:1-2. Joseph was the son of Jacob who had four wives. He had brothers from each of those step-mothers. Joseph had a bad home and did not have a Bible. The only way that God spoke to him was through the dreams that are mentioned in verses 5-8 and 9-11. In verse 20, we can see that his brothers did not like it. Joseph is then sold to Potiphar in verse 36. Even though he had every excuse not to trust God, we will see by the end of his story that he still keeps his faith.
