Joseph 5: “The Substitute”

“Jesus’ death is vicarious –
He died for us.”
– Stanley J. Grenz (1950-2005), former Regent College professor

On this Good Friday, we make connections between Joseph’s brother Judah and Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross.  Here is the message based on Genesis 44 as well as some points to reflect on…

Murphy’s Law states how if anything can go wrong, it will.  Like Joseph’s brothers, have you experienced that lately?

What words keep getting repeated in Judah’s speech to Joseph?  What do you think is their significance?

What does Judah offer to Joseph?  Explain in your own words how this foreshadows Jesus.

History:
Joseph 1: “Only in Your Dreams”
Joseph 2: “Run, Joseph, Run!”
Joseph 3: “When the Economy is in the Toilet”
Joseph 4: “Haunted”
