Types of Christ.

38 posts in this topic

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.

There is only one type of Christ and that is the son of God whom I serve.

All I am doing is drawing attention to Old Testament pictures of Him who was to come.

     I understand what I think you are trying to say,that Joseph was dipicted as a foreshadow of Christ to come.......or a representation of the promised seed,of course we know there is only ONE JESUS.....but the Old Testament indeed proclaims the eager anticipation of the Messiahs arrival & speaks of Him throughout ,just as Jesus explained to the men as they  walked together down the road after He was risen from the dead................How beautiful it must have been to have Jesus take them through the Scriptures.......Praise Jesus!!!!

They're not types of Christ, but I see what you are getting at.

OK, you guys are confusing me. I've heard of "types of Christ" for decades in sermons and such. (http://www.bible-topics.com/Types-of-Christ.html)

 

Why is there suddenly a problem with this word "type"?
