Throughout my life, I have heard too many weird stories that my mind just couldn’t perceive them all as true. One of the weirdest and most unbelievable of them is the story of Joseph.
By Dr. Ashraf Ezzat
I could have dismissed it like any other story of the remote past that didn’t necessarily warrant any scrutiny or investigation to validate its historicity, had it not been a biblical story, and had I not been Egyptian. Any given story should have a general ambiance that sets it apart by a unique dialogue, location and cultural background. That’s what we call the milieu of the story. The Story of Joseph is an ancient Arabian tale, and everything about it is Arabian: its linguistic, cultural and geographical milieu.
