Joseph Makes Me Think Of Jesus is not only a biography of the life of Joseph, but also a commentary which outlines the correspondences between his life and that of the Lord Jesus.
You would have liked Joseph. He was an outstanding fellow. In addition to a warm, winning personality, he had a “conscience live and keen” when it came to moral and ethical questions. Although he was not flawless, he was one of two men in the Old Testament of whom no fault or failure is recorded.
There are over one hundred correspondences between the life of Joseph and that of the Lord Jesus, so it is no wonder that our hearts are drawn to him. The Bible never says he was a type of Christ, but the resemblance is undeniable. We can’t read the story of his life without thinking of the Saviour of the world.
