Last night at bible class we were studying Joseph.
Joseph was the favorite of Jacob’s twelve sons.
Jacob gave him a “coat of many colors” which angered his brothers.
Joseph further angered his brothers by relating two dreams he had.
In the first dream, all the sons were cutting wheat and the brothers’ sheaths encircled and bowed down to Joseph’s sheath.
In the second one, Joseph describes how the sun, moon and eleven stars all bowed down to him.
At this point in the class, the guy sitting next to me around the table, a vocal supporter of Democrat Party platforms, said,
“I think Trump has that dream.”
I said,” Trump doesn’t have to dream it, it’s already happening.”
We then went on to read one of the bible commentators who said the first dream is about material prosperity and wealth, whereas the second is about spirituality and moral greatness. Rather than the two being contradictions, Joseph was the synthesis of them both. He dreamed of prosperity and a world cleansed of evil.
Almost sounds like a well-known New York real estate developer.
