G. von Rad's thesis that the Joseph story is a didactic text intended to exemplify and inculcate the ideals of Wisdom literature requires a fresh assessment, one that proceeds from a more nuanced understanding of the meaning of wisdom and revelation in the texts being compared. The Joseph story is found to reflect significantly diverent attitudes and assumptions from those characteristic of didactic wisdom. The concept of wisdom in the Joseph story is ayliated with the pietistic and inspired wisdom of Daniel rather than with the ethical and practical wisdom of Wisdom literature.
