Joseph and Jesus ~ Sermon 3
35And 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.
• His father was grieved at thought of the loss of his son
o No doubt God grieved at the loss of His Son for the earth went black when Jesus died. No doubt God had to turn his back.
36And the Midianites sold him into Egypt unto Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh’s, and captain of the guard.
• Joseph was sold into bondage
o Jesus was sold into bondage to be able to buy us from bondage
• Joseph went down to Egypt
o Joseph took Jesus went down to Egypt to save his life
1 And Joseph was brought down to Egypt; and Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh, captain of the guard, an Egyptian, bought him of the hands of the Ishmeelites, which had brought him down thither.
• Jesus had been brought down to Egypt by his father just like God a father of Joseph had allowed him to go to Egypt
2 And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.
• God was also with Jesus
3 And his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand.
• People seen that God was with Jesus
4 And Joseph found grace in his sight, and he served him: and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand.
5 And it came to pass from the time that he had made him overseer in his house, and over all that he had, that the LORD blessed the Egyptian’s house for Joseph’s sake; and the blessing of the LORD was upon all that he had in the house, and in the field.
6 And he left all that he had in Joseph’s hand; and he knew not ought he had, save the bread which he did eat. And Joseph was a goodly person, and well favoured.
