Genesis 37Joseph 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. grave Heb.
