Abstract In Joseph, biblical writers had a seer whose divinely inspired reputation as prophetic dreamer (37.5-11), diviner (40.12-36), and clairvoyant (50.24-25) enabled him to project the interpretations of his dreams into the future. If the author has not recast, or edited, the dreams, together with the interpretations put upon them by Joseph’s family, then the historiographers of Israel’s story have adjusted the dreams to show them ‘coming true’, the first in the story of Manassite Gideon’s son Abimelech and the relationship between Ephraimite Samuel and Benjaminite Saul. The working-out of Joseph’s first dream brought to an end the first book of Samuel.
