Question: What do preachers mean when they say Joseph was a type of Christ?
R. E. Johnson,
Answer: Webster's second definition for type as a noun is "a sign; a symbol; a figure of something to come." There are many people, things, and events recorded in the Old Testament which Bible teachers may compare as types of Christ. That is, God was using them to demonstrate some prophecy that Jesus would fulfill later. The Ark with its one door is a type of Christ's being God's one door to salvation. Abraham's effort to sacrifice Isaac is a type of God's future sacrifice of his Son, Jesus. Moses' leading Israel from bondage through the Wilderness of Sin (Sinai) to their Promised Land is a type of Christ's leading his followers at last to Heaven.
Perhaps the most obvious type of Christ in the Old Testament is Joseph, son of Jacob (Israel). As Jesus is the main character in the New Testament, Joseph is the main character in the book of Genesis. His story occupies more chapters than any other character, covering Genesis 37-50.
