Brother against brother in a classic tale of envy and greed.

The classic story of two brothers who turn against one another out of selfish greed. Colleen Dewhurst stars as Rebekah, who gives birth to twin boys, Esau and Jacob.

Though Esau is the first-born and entitled to his family's fortune, Jacob is Rebekah's favorite. Through a cunning and devious scheme, Rebekah helps steal Esau's birthright from his aging father, Isaac. The deception tears the family apart for twenty years, but just as reconciliation brings Jacob and Esau together, a new generation of envy is born.

Jacob's sons, who envy their brother Joseph, sell him as a slave to a passing caravan. Joseph is taken in chains to Egypt, but he astonishes all with his talents and becomes the Pharaoh's chief advisor. But Joseph cannot forget his family, and his forgiveness of thier cruelty is a lesson in morality that will live forever.
