The biblical story of Joseph is one where the main character is a hero we should all identify with. For he is a person in many ways we should emulate. Here is a man who goes through some of the worst experiences one can live through and still has an undying faith in G-D even during those moments. Joseph is not a saint but his forgiveness to those who initially done him wrong is worthy of sainthood. Joseph is able to see the big picture, the one where the sun pierces through many dark clouds. Yes, the story of Joseph is ancient but the message of courage, faith and love is timeless with a character that we should bring into our own heart as well.
