Joseph and Jesus
Similarity Joseph Jesus
Sent by his father Genesis 37:14 And he said to him, Go, I pray thee, see whether it be well with thy brethren, and well with the flocks; and bring me word again. So he sent him out of the vale of Hebron, and he came to Shechem. John 20:21 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.
Came unto his own Genesis 37:23 And it came to pass, when Joseph was come unto his brethren… John 1:11 He came unto his own…
and his own received him not Genesis 37:24 And they took him, and cast him into a pit… John 1:11 …and his own received him not.
Conspired against to be killed Genesis 37:18 And when they saw him afar off, even before he came near unto them, they conspired against him to slay him. Matthew 27:1 When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death:
Sold for silver Genesis 37:28 Then there passed by Midianites merchantmen; and they drew and lifted up Joseph out of the pit, and sold Joseph to the Ishmeelites for twenty pieces of silver: and they brought Joseph into Egypt. Matthew 26:15 And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver.
Falsely accused Genesis 39:14 That she called unto the men of her house, and spake unto them, saying, See, he hath brought in an Hebrew unto us to mock us; he came in unto me to lie with me, and I cried with a loud voice: Mark 14:56 For many bare false witness against him, but their witness agreed not together.
Public ministry begins at age 30 Genesis 41:46 And Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and went throughout all the land of Egypt. Luke 3:23 And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age…
People come to for bread Genesis 41:57 And all countries came into Egypt to Joseph for to buy corn; because that the famine was so sore in all lands. John 6:35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.
Came to him for life Genesis 42:10 And they said unto him, Nay, my lord, but to buy food are thy servants come. John 7:37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
Gives life as a free gift Genesis 42:28 And he said unto his brethren, My money is restored; and, lo, it is even in my sack… Romans 6:23 …the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Purchased the people Genesis 47:23 Then Joseph said unto the people, Behold, I have bought you this day and your land for Pharaoh… Acts 20:28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
