Joseph & Jesus

Joseph was loved by his father. Jesus is the beloved Son of God.
Joseph's brothers did not believe him and hated him. The Jews did not believe in Christ and
hated him.
Joseph's brothers conspired against him. The Jews conspired against Jesus.
They stripped Joseph of his robe. They stripped Jesus as the cross.
All things were laid into Joseph's trust. God gave all things into Jesus' hands.
Joseph's brothers didn't recognize him. The Jews didn't recognize the Messiah.
Joseph was tempted and sinned not. Jesus never sinned.
Joseph was condemned with two prisoners. Jesus was crucified with two prisoners.
One criminal was condemned and the other set free. One criminal was with Jesus in paradise.
Joseph's brothers bowed down. All will bow at Jesus' return.
Joseph was made ruler of all. Jesus has been given all authority.
Joseph was imprisoned on false charges. False witnesses stood against Jesus.
The whole earth came to Joseph. When Jesus was lifted up... all men were drawn to him.

God has been laying the path for all humanity to follow Jesus.
