Title: Joseph is More than a Colorful Coat

Description: Today we are joined by frequent guest of the History of the Papacy, but first time guest on Beyond the Big Screen, Gil Kidron of A Podcast of Biblical Proportions. We talk about the year 2000 animated film Joseph: Man of Dreams. Is this movie another kids film that misses the point of a biblical story or does it get the story more right than it even should have?

[00:00:00] Hi, Gil. Thanks again for coming on with me, me coming on your show. I'm really excited about today. Hi Steven. Yeah, this is a collab about maybe my favorite story of all time. The story of Joseph who shh. Such a good. It's really growing on me too. I it's, it's raising up through the ranks of my favorite story.
I'm in, there's so many good stories, but I think this one is definitely top 10, maybe top five, this field that we're going to talk about. An excellent job.
