Jesus Comes To Us In Our Time Of Testing.

Notes & Transcripts

We may see a parallel between Joseph and "the twelve" (his eleven brothers and his father, Jacob) and Jesus and "the twelve" (His disciples). Joseph is leading them into a situation of testing. His long-term intention is to show them that He loves them. Jesus comes to "the twelve" in their time of testing. He shows them that He loves them. Joseph reveals his identity to his family brothers. Jesus reveals His identity - "those who were in the boat worshipped Him, saying, Truly You are the Son of God" (Matthew 14:33). In Psalm 12:7, we have the great declaration of faith - "You, Lord, will keep the needy safe and will protect us forever from the wicked." In both stories - Joseph and Jesus, we see the salvation and protection of God. In Genesis 50:20, we read of God's purpose in the events of the Joseph story - "the saving of many lives." In the story of "Jesus ... walking on the lake", the "terrified" disciples became worshipping disciples (Matthew 14:25-26,33). This is what God's salvation does in our lives.
