Series: “Joseph: Dreamer/Redeemer”
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: “Betrayal and Deception”
Joseph’s murderous brothers throw him into a pit and then sell him as a slave. Father Jacob mourns the loss of his favorite son. Our Messiah was betrayed for money to those who wanted to kill him.  While some still struggle coming to faith in Yeshua, Ron Cantor talks about the rise of Messianic Believers in Israel.

Caption transcript for Joseph: Dreamer/Redeemer — “Betrayal and Deception” (2/9)

  • 00:31 From the pit to the palace,
  • 00:34 from certain death to abundant life;
  • 00:37 Joseph...the Patriarch
  • 00:40 who pictures Messiah.
  • 00:52 Shalom and welcome to our program, I'm Myles Weiss
  • 00:54 And I'm Katharine Weiss
  • 00:56 and we want to welcome you to our series on Joseph, the Dreamer/Redeemer.
  • 01:00 Yeah, it's really amazing to watch the parallels between Joseph and Yeshua , Jesus.
  • 01:06 It's an amazing story of this young man, the favorite of his father;
  • 01:10 just as the firstborn of the Father is Yeshua
  • 01:14 and how he's moving in this upcoming scene,
  • 01:17 he's going from " Hebron " which means "fellowship"
  • 01:20 to " Shechem " which means "shoulder".
  • 01:23 It's something about the burden that he is about to come under.
  • 01:26 It's really a picture of how Yeshua went from eternity,
  • 01:30 from communion with the Father
  • 01:32 into this world of strife, into this world of blood.
  • 01:34 He went from eternity to the cross.
  • 01:37 And Joseph is about to find his own trials isn't he?
  • 01:39 And just as Joseph was sent by his father to go see the welfare of his brethren.
  • 01:45 You know he was only seventeen?
  • 01:47 And his father sent him out just to see how his brothers were.
  • 01:51 And he had no idea what would befall his precious son after this.
  • 01:56 The word "welfare" in Hebrew, it has a meaning the same as " shalom ".
  • 02:02 So Jacob sent him out to go see the welfare, go see the shalom of your brethren.
  • 02:07 Well he was not greeted with any kind of shalom .
  • 02:10 He was greeted with hostility because of the dream that was in him.
  • 02:14 Yeah
  • 02:15 So let's go now and hear more of our story.
  • 02:24 Clearly Joseph's dreams had set his brothers on edge.
  • 02:28 It was bad enough, they thought,
  • 02:31 that he was their father's favorite son.
  • 02:35 Now he had delusions of grandeur.
  • 03:06 There's such a theme of jealousy against the sovereignty of God.
  • 03:12 Genesis 37:3 says,
  • 03:13 (Speaking Hebrew)
  • 03:18 Israel/Jacob loved Joseph above his brothers.
  • 03:21 It's such a setup for jealousy and envy,
  • 03:24 but that envy and jealousy is so dangerous isn't it?
  • 03:28 Back in the story of Jacob and Esau
  • 03:30 we see what the outflow of that jealousy becomes.
  • 03:33 We're standing here with the Al Aqsa Mosque behind us.
  • 03:36 The sons of Esau have built that mosque on the land given to the sons of Jacob.
  • 03:41 And that envy, that jealousy
  • 03:43 is still being played out in our lives today
  • 03:45 here in Israel and around the world.
  • 03:47 We see the danger of Islamic theology
  • 03:50 and what happens to people when they come under that.
  • 03:53 And it really goes back to that envy, that jealousy.
  • 03:55 In fact. the Hebrew word for "envy", "jealousy" turning into murderous rage is " satam ".
  • 04:01 It's one letter away from "Satan".
  • 04:06 Well we see Joseph going to look for his brothers.
  • 04:10 There's so many times that Joseph is looking for the welfare of his brothers.
  • 04:15 But the brothers were not in the same place that Myles was talking about earlier.
  • 04:19 They were eaten up with envy.
  • 04:20 They were eaten up with anger.
  • 04:22 They were eaten up with that the father was showing favoritism towards Joseph.
  • 04:28 And I feel like there is so many times in our own lives
  • 04:34 that we've experienced that betrayal.
  • 04:36 And God wants us to know that there's a way through love that we can overcome.
  • 04:42 And that's definitely what we see in Joseph's life.
  • 04:44 WOW...what a picture of Yeshua .
  • 04:46 Luke 19 tells us...
  • 04:51 And John 3:16 tells us ...
  • 04:57 And that Jesus didn't come into the world to condemn the world
  • 05:00 but that he might save the world.
  • 05:02 That's really this picture that we see with Joseph.
  • 05:05 There was such a special sanctification, setting apart of Joseph
  • 05:09 that just riled up that anger and that envy.
  • 05:11 Just like the special nature of his birth through Rachel, the beloved wife (of Jacob).
  • 05:18 Just as Jesus came as a virgin birth.
  • 05:20 Which is very hard for a man to understand.
  • 05:23 God's view is not the same as man's view is it?
  • 05:25 Right, but God always makes a way.
  • 05:28 The brothers were eaten up with so much envy and strife that
  • 05:31 they actually threw him in a pit but their heart was that they were going to murder him.
  • 05:36 We're going to see this unfold in our drama as it continues.
  • 05:40 Joseph was a dreamer.
  • 05:42 Just as Yeshua was speaking about his glorious future.
  • 05:45 Imagine Yeshua at 12 years old in the Temple speaking to the priests with authority.
  • 05:51 And here's Joseph coming as a young man with this authoritative view of the future
  • 05:56 looking to something glorious that was going to happen, not quite understanding it.
  • 06:00 Jesus knew what was coming.
  • 06:02 But I was thinking about the parable
  • 06:04 that Jesus tells us in Matthew
  • 06:06 where God sends the prophets.
  • 06:08 He sends those vineyard workers.
  • 06:10 He sends words of warning.
  • 06:11 He sends hope.
  • 06:13 He sends all of these ways for the Israelites to find a way out of their sin.
  • 06:18 And then finally he sends his own Son.
  • 06:24 And they say let's kill him lest we have to listen to him.
  • 06:27 And isn't that what's in the heart of the these brothers?
  • 06:30 But God is going to deliver Joseph and we're going to see
  • 06:34 an amazing story unfold as we continue.

  • 08:34 Myles - Stripped of his robe Joseph laid at the bottom
  • 08:37 of an empty water cistern beaten and bruised.
  • 08:40 Katharine and I descended the steps of a similar cistern in Jerusalem where we experienced
  • 08:45 first hand the loneliness of a pit well below ground level.
  • 08:52 We're here in a traditional spot of where Jesus was kept the night he was betrayed
  • 08:57 the night before he went to the cross.
  • 08:59 We're in the pit Myles.
  • 09:00 Yeah, just as Joseph was in the pit,
  • 09:02 a picture of the bigger pit to come
  • 09:05 which was the death of Yeshua on the cross.
  • 09:08 I'm going to read from Psalm 88, the traditional Psalm associated with this season of Jesus' life.
  • 09:15 Remember this was written by the Psalmist hundreds of years before Jesus came.
  • 09:23 O LORD my God by day I cry out.
  • 09:25 At night I clamber in your presence.
  • 09:27 Let my prayer come before you;
  • 09:29 incline your ear to my call for help.
  • 09:33 For my soul is surfeited with troubles
  • 09:35 and my life draws near to the netherworld.
  • 09:38 I am numbered with those who down into the pit.
  • 09:41 I'm a man without strength.
  • 09:45 My couch is among the dead
  • 09:48 like the slain who lie in the grave
  • 09:50 who are remembered no longer
  • 09:52 and who are cut off from your care.
  • 09:56 You have plunged me into the bottom of the pit into the dark abyss.
  • 09:59 Upon me your wrath lies heavy
  • 10:03 and with all your billows you overwhelm me.
  • 10:07 You have taken my friends away from me
  • 10:09 You have made me an abomination to them.
  • 10:12 I am imprisoned and I cannot escape.
  • 10:15 My eyes are growing dim through affliction.
  • 10:20 Daily I call upon you O LORD
  • 10:22 To you I stretch out my hands.
  • 10:24 Will you work wonders for the dead?
  • 10:27 Will the shades arise to give you thanks?
  • 10:30 Do they declare your kindness in the grave,
  • 10:33 your faithfulness among those who have perished?
  • 10:37 Are your wonders made known in the darkness
  • 10:40 or your justice in the land of oblivion?
  • 10:44 But I O LORD cry out to you.
  • 10:47 With my morning prayer I wait upon you.
  • 10:51 Why O LORD do you reject me?
  • 10:53 Why hide your face from me?
  • 10:57 I am afflicted and in agony.
  • 10:59 From my youth I am dazed with the burden of your dread.
  • 11:04 Your furys have swept over me.
  • 11:07 Your terrors have cut me off.
  • 11:10 They encompass me like water all the day
  • 11:13 on all sides they close in upon me.
  • 11:16 Companion and neighbor you have taken from me
  • 11:19 and my only friend is darkness.
  • 11:34 Some of the places we take you on site are traditional sites
  • 11:37 that are built over what may be the actual place where some of these events took place.
  • 11:41 The Psalm 88 which is read down in that pit speaks about crying out from the pit.
  • 11:46 And it's really in the area of Gallicantu or "rooster crowed"
  • 11:51 commemorating that denial that came when Peter denied the LORD.
  • 11:55 Well not only Peter but the LORD himself
  • 11:58 when he was brought down to the pit in the time of his trial.
  • 12:01 I can remember feeling the overwhelming separation from people or from even God Himself.
  • 12:09 Can you imagine Yeshua and Joseph at that time?
  • 12:12 Yeah, it's overwhelming.
  • 12:13 That's why Psalm 88 is what is read down in the pit.
  • 12:16 And if you see it in the Hebrew it says,
  • 12:18 (Speaking Hebrew)
  • 12:22 which means
  • 12:26 And it's just a mournful crying out for deliverance isn't it?
  • 12:29 So now let's go back to Jerusalem.
  • 12:41 You know when we think about Jacob/Israel sending Joseph
  • 12:47 to go see the welfare of his brethren.
  • 12:50 You know that word welfare in the Hebrew means the " shalom ".
  • 12:53 And that's such a picture of our heavenly Father
  • 12:56 sending Jesus to bring his shalom to the people.
  • 13:00 But when Joseph comes to his brothers their heart is not receptive.
  • 13:05 They plotted in their heart for a long time to take care of this dreamer.
  • 13:10 And they find the opportunity in this area in Shechem,
  • 13:14 in this area where they're going to throw him in a pit
  • 13:17 and they might even do something worse.
  • 13:20 You know I think about the Scripture
  • 13:22 you know it says in Psalms 55 about Yeshua, what he said.
  • 13:26 He said...
  • 13:37 That we enjoyed fellowship together; it was you my brothers who threw me into a pit.
  • 13:43 So it's so poignant in this moment.
  • 13:46 We see the Jewish people cooperating in
  • 13:49 the sovereign plan of God of putting our Messiah in a pit.
  • 13:55 And yet even in that the Scripture's so clear in Hebrews 1:9
  • 14:02 And that's sort of the same tug of war
  • 14:04 the same jealousy that causes this alienation
  • 14:07 and yet this desire to look into it.
  • 14:10 Think about this.
  • 14:11 The brothers stripped Joseph of his coat
  • 14:13 just as Yeshua was stripped and his robe was a scarlet robe;
  • 14:17 a fake robe was put on him as a false king.
  • 14:20 He was put in the pit just as Yeshua went into the tomb.
  • 14:23 And then Judah steps up and says
  • 14:26 let's not kill him, let's ransom him.
  • 14:28 And isn't it amazing that Jesus is going to come from the line of Judah?
  • 14:33 In fact, he's going to come through David from Judah as the Lion of the tribe of Judah.
  • 14:39 And so this suffering servant that we see in Joseph
  • 14:41 is going to be returning as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah.
  • 14:46 And Joseph was put in the pit for shekels; he was sold for shekels.
  • 14:50 Twenty
  • 14:52 And just as Jesus is going to be sold for thirty pieces of silver.
  • 14:56 So many parallels.
  • 14:59 Such an incredible picture of the Messiah.
  • 15:00 First, in his suffering
  • 15:02 but we're beginning to hint at something glorious that is going to come
  • 15:06 as Joseph shows us that we can be put in a pit
  • 15:10 but God can keep us down if he has a plan for hearts as he does for you and us as well.
  • 15:35 And so it was that Joseph was sold to a group of Ishmaelite traders for 20 pieces of silver.
  • 15:44 Joseph was bound for Egypt
  • 15:46 while his brothers reveled in the notion they would never see him again.

  • 16:51 Myles and I would love to host you on one of our tours
  • 16:54 It is the land of miracles.
  • 16:56 God is continually doing miracles today
  • 16:59 proving Himself strong for the people of Israel.
  • 17:01 And the Word will become alive to you
  • 17:04 like no other place in the Land.
  • 17:06 That's true.
  • 17:08 You know, this story of Joseph parallels the story of Jesus in miraculous ways,
  • 17:11 speaking of miracles.
  • 17:13 Think about this.
  • 17:15 Even the name "Judah", the brother whose idea it was to sell Joseph into slavery;
  • 17:19 it was Judas in the New Testament whose idea it was to sell Yeshua for silver as well.
  • 17:25 Well you know, we see Joseph; and all he did was have a dream
  • 17:30 and share that dream.
  • 17:31 But the heart of man is desperately wicked.
  • 17:34 Who could know it?
  • 17:35 And his brothers demonstrated that heart.
  • 17:38 But thank God.
  • 17:39 God had a deliverer for Joseph.
  • 17:41 And it came with a band of people taking the dreamer
  • 17:45 to be the deliverer as he goes to Egypt.
  • 18:17 This had been the coat that Joseph's father had made for him
  • 18:21 the coat of many colors
  • 18:23 which he wore while tending his father's sheep.
  • 18:27 It was a cunning plan they thought
  • 18:30 that would provide evidence of Joseph's death by a wild beast.
  • 18:35 The brothers bring the tattered coat
  • 18:37 now covered with dried blood
  • 18:40 to their father Jacob.
  • 19:00 You know life is not without its trials.
  • 19:03 You see, even God's patriarchs suffered immensely
  • 19:07 under God's plan or along with God's plan.
  • 19:10 You know I have 2 sons...
  • 19:11 We have 2 sons of our own.
  • 19:13 And I can't imagine the thought of sending my son off to see his other brothers
  • 19:19 and then to find out that he was "killed".
  • 19:23 I think there might have been some knowledge in the back of Jacob's mind that this
  • 19:29 might not just have been by a wild animal,
  • 19:32 it might have happened by the wild animal inside of them.
  • 19:36 Yeah, it's really true.
  • 19:37 Maybe that he was in a measure of denial
  • 19:40 but also not wanting to believe that the other sons could do something like this.
  • 19:44 It's the power of jealousy.
  • 19:46 You know it also reminds me of that incredible moment
  • 19:49 at the cross where Yeshua is separated from the Father.
  • 19:53 That moment of tension when all the sin of the world is put on him and he cries out
  • 19:58 Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?
  • 20:01 O my God why have you forsaken me?
  • 20:03 Talk about separation of a father from a son,
  • 20:05 that's the eternal version.
  • 20:07 And it had been played out in Joseph's life
  • 20:09 And it's just very poignant for any of us.
  • 20:12 One of the reasons why we do this program is to continue to reach for our Jewish people
  • 20:19 that they would know the " shalom " (peace) and the " ahava " (love)
  • 20:22 that comes from relationship with Yeshua.
  • 20:25 And Ron Cantor, our dear friend,
  • 20:27 I interviewed him last week.
  • 20:28 You may have seen that program.
  • 20:29 I continued pressing him about the incredible work he's doing in Tel Aviv.
  • 20:33 In fact,I asked him to explain,
  • 20:35 How do you reach out to our Jewish people in Tel Aviv today?
  • 20:39 So let's go to my interview with Ron.
  • 20:42 For the most part we put most of our effort in training our people to reach out on their own
  • 20:48 For Jewish people it's a little bit strange
  • 20:51 when someone walks up to you on the street that you don't know
  • 20:54 and in English they tell you that you need to believe in Yeshua .
  • 20:58 And there's a lot of baggage that the Jewish people carry.
  • 21:03 There's a big gap.
  • 21:05 Not only from the holocaust which obviously Hitler wasn't a Christian
  • 21:10 but he did say I'm just finishing what the church started.
  • 21:14 You go back to the inquisitions when there were forced baptism and forced conversions,
  • 21:18 the Crusades where thousands upon thousands of Jews
  • 21:22 were murdered by people who called themselves Christians.
  • 21:25 Obviously they weren't.
  • 21:27 But my dad doesn't know the difference between the two.
  • 21:30 So we have found that most people who come to faith and stick with the faith
  • 21:35 it's through a friend or family member.
  • 21:37 And honestly I think it's that way everywhere, not just in Israel.
  • 21:40 Wherever I go I always ask, how many of you came to faith
  • 21:44 primarily through some outreach campaign verses through a friend or family?
  • 21:49 It's always 90 percent....
  • 21:51 Now even if they went to a campaign
  • 21:53 it was a friend or a family member that took them there.
  • 21:56 So, our focus is to train our people to be ready
  • 21:59 whether it's in their Israeli jobs or schools.
  • 22:02 Be ready to give an answer for what they believe.
  • 22:04 That's good.
  • 22:05 It really is...and it makes sense.
  • 22:07 It's a relational, social, cultural phenomenon
  • 22:11 because we're a tribal people.
  • 22:13 And it makes sense that most of the forward motion among the Jewish people is friendship.
  • 22:20 It's relational.
  • 22:22 So you've seen that in Tel Aviv.
  • 22:24 Now, Tel Aviv has the reputation of being the city that plays here in Israel.
  • 22:30 But I think in a sense that's an advent - it's advantageous for you
  • 22:34 as someone who's reaching out
  • 22:35 because there isn't the religious baggage as much
  • 22:37 Correct?
  • 22:38 Right.
  • 22:39 I came out of the New Age.
  • 22:40 I think many Jewish people come out of less than Shaul synagogue orientation.
  • 22:45 We have people in our congregation that are still coming out of the New Age.
  • 22:49 But they are attracted to the message.
  • 22:51 They are not fully believers yet but they come every week, or almost every week.
  • 22:55 And so you're right, Tel Aviv is the city that plays.
  • 22:58 as opposed to Jerusalem, the city that prays.
  • 23:02 But they're much more open to the message of the Gospel
  • 23:07 because they've been turned off by the Orthodox.
  • 23:09 They go to traditional synagogue and they don't find fulfillment
  • 23:12 they feel judgment.
  • 23:14 And then they come into a place and they say
  • 23:16 Okay, this is Hebrew, the worship is in Hebrew, that guy speaking is in Hebrew.
  • 23:21 But this is not like a traditional synagogue
  • 23:23 and the people are happy,
  • 23:25 their hands are lifted up, they're worshiping God.
  • 23:27 So there's an attraction.
  • 23:29 We had a young lady that came years ago.
  • 23:31 She had gone through several traumatic experiences.
  • 23:35 Her father had gotten sick.
  • 23:36 She had come back to Israel to study law.
  • 23:41 And a friend in her law school invited her to the congregation.
  • 23:46 She came in and immediately felt the presence of God and became a believer.
  • 23:50 But I want to be clear.
  • 23:52 You mentioned revival.
  • 23:53 We're not quite there yet.
  • 23:55 I had the pleasure of working in the Brownsville Revival for a couple years.
  • 23:59 And that was amazing, authentic.
  • 24:02 What we're seeing here is not that.
  • 24:05 We're not seeing hundreds of Israelis coming to faith every week.
  • 24:07 But I want to be clear;
  • 24:09 In 1948 there were 25 documented Messianic Jews in Israel...25!
  • 24:16 Right
  • 24:18 29 actually, but they asked them all to leave and promised them visas to other countries.
  • 24:22 And 4 left, 25 stayed.
  • 24:24 There were zero Messianic congregations.
  • 24:27 So today, there's about 18,000 Messianic Jews all over the country
  • 24:31 and about 120 plus congregations.
  • 24:34 So it is a...
  • 24:36 in Hebrew we say, (speaking Hebrew)"a type of revival".
  • 24:41 And Ezekiel said that when...
  • 24:44 Ezekiel 36:24...
  • 24:46 I'm going to bring you back from all the countries where I scattered you.
  • 24:48 Most people stop reading there.
  • 24:50 But right after that he says,
  • 24:52 And then I'm going to sprinkle clean water on you and you're going to be clean.
  • 24:55 So we came back in 1948; we became a nation.
  • 24:58 In 1967 Jerusalem was restored as the Capital.
  • 25:01 And it is interesting Myles that just so many of the leaders in the Messianic movement;
  • 25:08 not just in Israel but worldwide
  • 25:10 came to faith just after 1967
  • 25:13 in what was called the "Jesus Revolution"
  • 25:15 primarily in the states but in other countries as well.
  • 25:18 So there's a connection between the restoration of physical Israel
  • 25:22 and Jewish people coming to faith.
  • 25:27 It's wonderful to hear from Ron.
  • 25:29 He is a good friend of ours.
  • 25:31 You think of Jerusalem as really only the Holy City
  • 25:34 but it's got several characteristics.
  • 25:36 Tel Aviv as the city; characteristically as "the city that plays"
  • 25:40 Jerusalem is "the city that prays"
  • 25:42 and Haifa is "the city that works".
  • 25:44 And I like to always pray for Tel Aviv,
  • 25:46 where sin abounds, grace does much more abound.
  • 25:49 And I've had that experience being out and sharing the Gospel
  • 25:53 and sharing God's love, I should say.
  • 25:55 And letting him unfold the Gospel through his love.
  • 25:59 Yeah, we really see that with these ministries like Ron's.
  • 26:01 And that's why we always ask you to join with us,
  • 26:04 to partner with us
  • 26:05 to help us to get these programs out.
  • 26:07 One of our favorite programs that we've done is called
  • 26:10 "Acts then and Now; the Story Continues"
  • 26:12 And we highlight ministries
  • 26:14 like Ron Cantor
  • 26:15 like Eitan Shishkoff in the north.
  • 26:17 And some of the other friends that we have there
  • 26:20 who are the living witnesses
  • 26:22 who are alive today and preaching the Gospel
  • 26:24 in a relevant way that tells the Jewish people
  • 26:27 you are not becoming a Gentile if you believe in Yeshua.
  • 26:31 You're becoming a Jewish person
  • 26:32 who believes in the Jewish Messiah.
  • 26:34 It's very different.
  • 26:35 I love it.
  • 26:37 Myles always says the most Jewish thing he can do is believe in his Messiah.
  • 26:39 And it's really true.
  • 26:40 It's making us think again of what God's already told us.
  • 26:44 Is that the Gospel is to the Jew first.
  • 26:46 And thank God he's restoring his people in the Land.
  • 26:50 He's sprinkling that clean water.
  • 26:52 He's restoring that breath upon them.
  • 26:54 And we are seeing miracles through this work that the LORD has done.
  • 26:59 It does not take away anything from Jewish history,
  • 27:01 from Jewish culture, from Jewish heritage
  • 27:04 to explore a life of faith in Yeshua .
  • 27:07 It's part and parcel of our life.
  • 27:09 And so we appreciate you standing with us as we continue to reach for this together.
  • 27:15 And we always like to remind you at the end of each program.
  • 27:17 Sha'a'lu Shalom Yerushalayim
  • 27:19 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
