One of the most notable lessons the story of Joseph offers is the patient endurance, childlike trust, and humble dependence of Joseph himself. Although he endured many trials, he didn’t become trapped by resentment, self-pity, or bitterness. Instead, he kept entrusting himself to God. Alistair Begg unpacks for us how Joseph’s life and posture before God foreshadowed the coming Christ, who also endured suffering so that we, the perpetrators of sin, might be saved.
1Jacob lived in the land of his father's sojournings, in the land of Canaan.
