_ Chapter 27...
Joseph is one of the many types and foreshadows of Jesus Christ. He was loved by his father and hated by his brothers. His brother’s jealousy would lead them to do him evil, but God would use it for His purpose. Just like Jesus Christ, he was brought to a place of authority at age 30 to save many. Joseph says it best to his brother in Genesis 50:20 (NIV), “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.”
I would love to read any other thoughts you have along this line, or anything else you get from the Scripture today.
