Joseph's Word is the location of Joseph Seed's giant statue in the Henbane River region of Hope County in Far Cry 5. The statue itself is hollow and consists of several levels where the Cult stores various supply crates, safes, and on the top level, a copy of the book "The Word of Joseph".

The area is heavily decorated with Bliss flowers and various Cult symbols. The Pilgrimage, a long trek that the Devoted undertake around the Henbane River ends at one of the stone fireplaces, followed by the ritualistic leap of faith that usually results in their death.

Far Cry: New Dawn

Seventeen years after the nuclear war, the statue remain relativley unchanged. The location is important to New Eden, being the site of their sacred fire. It was extinguished by the Highwaymen but is re-lit by The Captain in the mission Eden's Fire.

  • The statue seems to be a mockery of the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, which is one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.
  • It is unclear when the statue was built, being fully completed in the begginning of Far Cry 5.
    • The statue was revealed to be built by Faith, however considering a statue that size would take years to complete (for reference, the statue of Christ the Redeemer took 9 years to construct) and Faith being a relativley new member of Eden's Gate (having joined 7 years prior to the events of Far Cry 5), that would mean Faith ordered the construction immeadiatley after joining Eden's Gate .That would also mean that Faith was made a herald upon joining Eden's Gate. This is likley an oversight by the developers
