"When his brothers saw that their father loved him best of all his sons, they hated him"

‘This is the heir. Come, let us kill him and acquire his inheritance.’(Gn 37:3-4, 12-13a, 17b-28a)

The stone that the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone;
by the Lord has this been done,
and it is wonderful in our eyes
. - Psalm 118, 22

"For a Christian, believing in God cannot be separated from believing in the One he sent, his 'beloved Son', in whom the Father is 'well pleased'; God tells us to listen to him. The Lord himself said to his disciples: 'Believe in God, believe also in me.' We can believe in Jesus Christ because he is himself God, the Word made flesh: 'No one has ever seen God; the only Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he has made him known.' Because he 'has seen the Father', Jesus Christ is the only one who knows him and can reveal him." (CCC 151)
