Joseph is a type of Christ, in respect of two advents. (Gen 37:3 - 4.)

At his first advent Jesus was hated by the majority of the Jews, and they disposed of Him. (Gen 37:27 - 28, & Gen 37:36)

But look what happened, (Gen 41:40 - 42.)

And then, (Gen 41:29 - 30, & Gen 42:1-3.) 

But they did not recognise Joseph their brother, (Gen 42:6 & 8.)

But then, (Gen 45:3 to 8, &  Gen 45:13 - 15.)

Which is how it will be when Jesus returns to for the second advent

Bless you all.

Edwin..

The story of Joseph , a type of christ, yet another foreshadow and sign, yet another picture pointing to the day when the "same water that saved Israel would swallow up the Egyptians"

being both born of water yet separated



Joseph being the first born of many, as he hung onto the promises of God, even though his life seemed as if "God had forsaken him" and when life was at the lowest God raised him up


Being Falsely accused and led by his own brothers into a prison being sold as a slave, Joseph was the  interpreter of dreams

So too Jesus brings revelation, being the One who brings into being and brings light to the dim mirror of life  , who brings understanding to the meaning of life and is the Great interpreter

Only He is the light that shines in the darkness and the one who saves the "seed"

The seed can be said to be "the promise" , and we save the seed for future days of darkness, in our  hearts and at the right time the seed is the seed that feeds those who walk in darkness and brings Light to those in spiritual darkness

Joseph being "gifted" in the interpretaion of "languages" whether earthly or heavenly, being that the giver gave gifts to all  and left gifts in His train  Ephesians 4:8-10  Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. 9 (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? 10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things

Those who hunger and those who are in need Genesis 41:49 Joseph stored up huge quantities of grain, like the sand of the sea; it was so much that he stopped keeping records because it was beyond measure.


Genesis 22:17  that in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of  the heavens, and as the sand which is upon the seashore. And thy seed shall possess the gate of  his enemies.


Yet Joseph?s brothers did not recognize him.....John 1:10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him

  the chief baker being the one who worked his own works and being the works  of Cain Genesis 4:3

 Genesis 40:16 chief baker   was the fruit of his own works and being the death of him, being that the waters engulfed him and he was no longer

the birds came and snatched the seed away Mark 4:3-4  3 ?Listen! A farmer went out to sow his seed. 4 As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up.

The three branches in the butler's dream Genesis 40:9  signifying  three days in which Jesus was to be in the belly of  the  whale [Jonah and the whale - in the water] and after which He would sit at the right hand Ephesians 2:6

Ephesians 2:6  6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus


Hold onto the promises of God  - see link Hold onto the promises of God and save the seed for future days


Yes Joseph "IS a type of christ" being that Joseph lives on, as does the waters that separate those who are saved and not saved

The Word Lives on. He  never changes from time to time

As does the day live on, as we live from day to day so we live in a day

Let that day spring forth from prison to life and from  imprisonment to life

let the " Job"  of life ,...when we have come to an end ...be the new life to which we enter


let the anointing fall upon those whom have a clean  heart and pure hands Psalm 24: 3-10


Not by their own works but by Christ....let Cain continue to kill Abel , so that Abel   can live Genesis 4:10 and spring up from the ground

And so the Living Word continues day by day and year by year

Yes Joseph is a type of Christ and not "was"

He still is

Here we have The butler at one side and the baker at the other and in the center the Cross

Isn't all righteous people a type of Christ because He is the Righteous One.
