How is Pharaoh's telling of his dreams different from how the narrator told them earlier in the chapter? What does this tell us about Pharaoh's frame of mind? What two factors does Joseph point out are the basis of his interpretation of Pharaoh's dreams? What is to be learned from the fact that God has spoken to Pharaoh? (61 min.)
