Imhotep was a visor to the King.  He designed the Djoser Pyramid Complex.  Joseph and Imhotep may be one in the same person.

Imhotep was second in charge of Egypt.   He designed the Djoser Pyramid Complex at Saqqara.  He is also credited with saving his people from a seven year famine.  He was not of royal blood.  He was born a commoner.  When he died, he was burried in a tomb in a coffin like many of the Pharaohs.  Many years  after his death he was deified.  It has been suggested that Joseph and Imhotep may be one in the same person.

Joseph was Imhotep
