37:2 These are the generations of Jacob. Joseph, being seventeen years old, was feeding the flock with his brethren; and the lad was with the sons of Bilhah, and with the sons of Zilpah, his father's wives: and Joseph brought unto his father their evil report.
37:35 And all his sons and all his daughters rose up to comfort him; but he refused to be comforted; and he said, For I will go down into the grave unto my son mourning. Thus his father wept for him.
While it is nowhere asserted that Joseph was a type of Christ, the analogies are too numerous to be accidental. They are:
(7) as Joseph reconciled his brethren to himself, and afterward exalted them, so will it be with Christ and His Jewish brethren Genesis 45:1-15 ; Deuteronomy 30:1-10 ; Hosea 2:14-18 ; Romans 11:1 Romans 11:15 Romans 11:25 Romans 11:26 .
