Joseph and Jesus ~ Sermon 1

Genesis 37

1And Jacob dwelt in the land wherein his father was a stranger, in the land of Canaan.

2These 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.

Joseph fed his fathers flock

Jesus fed His fathers flock

3Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours.

Joseph’s father loved him very much

Jesus father’ loves him very much

Joseph had a unique coat

Jesus had a seamless garment

4And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him.

Joseph was hated

Jesus was hated by many

Joseph’s brothers were jealous of him

Jesus had people which were jealous of him

Joseph’s brothers could not speak peaceable to him

Jesus had those which could not speak peaceful unto him

5And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more.

6And he said unto them, Hear, I pray you, this dream which I have dreamed:

7For, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and, lo, my sheaf arose, and also stood upright; and, behold, your sheaves stood round about, and made obeisance to my sheaf.

8And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us? or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words.

9And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.

10And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth?

11And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying.

Joseph’s brothers were envious of him

Jesus had many that were envious of him
