Use this introductory activity to teach about the Bible story of Joseph in the well and being sold as a slave.
Today we’re going to hear the story of Joseph, whose brothers threw him into a pit, and later sold him as a slave. The brothers tell their father Jacob that Joseph had been savaged by a wild animal. This isn’t true, but this is the lie that they have to keep up. That’s pretty hard! How do they make sure that the lie doesn’t fall to the ground, and Jacob discovers the truth?
