Perhaps more than any of the patriarchs in the Bible, Joseph presents us with a clear preview of the Redeemer, Yeshua Ha Mashiach. From his humble beginnings to his ascendancy as a leader of the known world, Joseph pictures the One to come. Born to humble parents, Yeshua’s suffering and ultimate sacrifice as the Lamb of God will lead to His return as the Lion of Judah. In this nine-part series, we lay bare the “Egyptian” (foreign) identity and centuries-long gentile view of Jesus and reveal Him as the Jewish Messiah and Savior of the world.
Episode: “Jealousy and Rejection”
As we begin this nine-program series, we see Joseph tending sheep and wearing his coat of many colors. Jealousy and rejection from his brothers have already begun but worsen after he tells them about his dreams. Myles and Katharine compare Joseph’s treatment by his family to Yeshua’s rejection by many in his day, though He was sent to be the Messiah. Ron Cantor talks about his book Identity Theft: The loss of Jewish identity.
