  Biography: Joseph Story
JOSEPH STORY (1779-1845) Considered today "the foremost of American legal writers" was born in Marblehead, Mass.
By 1841, in spite of everything he had achieved in codifying United States law, Story faced a dilemma when the Supreme Court began its hearing of the Amistad case in February, 1941.
In it he wrote that the Africans were not pirates and were justified in seizing the Amistad for they had exercised "the ultimate right of all human beings in extreme cases to resist oppression." In the absence of positive law " 'the eternal principles of justice' had to prevail" (Jones, 190-191).

 Story of Joseph - Yousef - PASSIA
It is as if Joseph is creating a psychodramatic reenactment so that he would find it psychologically safe to return to the same family setting as he left it, but this time assured that his brothers won't repeat their behavior.
According to the Bible (Genesis 35: 16-20), Joseph’s mother, Rachel, died while giving birth to his brother Benjamin, presumably when Joseph was still in infancy, yet Joseph’s second dream finds his mother, symbolized by the moon, bowing down to him (Genesis 37: 9-10), which indicates that he has “unfinished business” with her.
Joseph is uncharacteristically wordless, and doesn’t act on their request, as if to indicate that without doing anything more, he has virtually subjected them to the fate he himself endured in Egypt before his rise to power.

 The Story of Joseph in Five Religious Traditions
Joseph is the source of guidance and protection for everyone he encounters, even when separated from everyone while he was in the darkness of the well or in the prison where he has been cast.
But in spite of this unifying recurrent symbolism, the effect of the midrash is not to interpret the story of Joseph as a perfectly articulated divine allegory but as a combination of historical narrative and religiously charged canonical text the ultimate signification of which remains mysterious and inchoate but spiritually attractive to many.
Joseph is one of seven topics chosen by Ambrose as subjects of his major exegetical works, thus reinvesting the story with a significance that it seems to have lost in later Jewish midrash.

 Justice Joseph Story (RELI 310 / EDUC 385)
Story concluded that, “without some prohibition of religious tests, a successful sect, in our country, might, by once possessing power, pass test-laws, which would secure to themselves a monopoly of all the offices of trust and profit, under the national government” (1833/1970, ii: 709).
Story was a firm believer in the beauty and truth of Christianity and understood it as the model for the highest level of morality, writing that “the influence of Christianity [on the human character]… is the most instructive of all speculations, which can employ the intellect of many” (1828, 31).
Interpreting the “free exercise” clause, Story noted that “the duty of supporting religion, and especially the Christian religion, is very different from the right to force the consciences of other men, or to punish them for worshipping God in the manner, which, they believe, their accountability to him requires” (1833/1970, ii: 727).

Joseph's dealings with his brothers in Genesis 42-45 is a typical picture of the way in which the Lord Jesus Christ deals with his erring brothers who were given to him by God the Father before the world began and redeemed by his own precious blood at Calvary.
