Abstract The parable of Joseph in the Hebrew Bible, the New Testament, and Islam. Prefaced by comments by Moojan Momen.
Notes I've prefaced the following two articles with some notes by Moojan Momen on the symbolism of the story of Joseph. These notes were originally posted to a Wilmette Institute private listserver on the Qur'an on Jan. 17 2001, and are included with permission.
