Chapter 37

37:2  These are the generations of Jacob. Joseph, being seventeen years old, was feeding the flock with his brethren; and the lad was with the sons of Bilhah, and with the sons of Zilpah, his father's wives: and Joseph brought unto his father their evil report.


While it is nowhere asserted that Joseph was a type of Christ, the analogies are too numerous to be accidental. They are:

(1) both were especial objects of a father's love Genesis 37:3; Matthew 3:17; John 3:35; 5:20.

(2) both were hated by their brethren Genesis 37:4; John 15:25.

(3) the superior claims of both were rejected by their brethren Genesis 37:8; Matthew 21:37-39; John 15:24,25.

(4) the brethren of both conspired against them to slay them Genesis 37:18; Matthew 26:3,4.

(5) Joseph was, in intent and figure, slain by his brethren, as was Christ Genesis 37:24; Matthew 27:35-37.

(6) each became a blessing among the Gentiles, and gained a Gentile bride Genesis 41:1-45; Acts 15:14; Ephesians 5:25-32.

(7) as Joseph reconciled his brethren to himself, and afterward exalted them, so will it be with Christ and His Jewish brethren Genesis 45:1-15; Deuteronomy 30:1-10; Hosea 2:14-18; Romans 11:1,15,25,26.

37:35  And all his sons and all his daughters rose up to comfort him; but he refused to be comforted; and he said, For I will go down into the grave unto my son mourning. Thus his father wept for him.
