JOSEPH’S BROTHERS BOW BEFORE HIM
Joseph had two similar dreams when he was young. In the first, he saw he and his brothers binding sheaves in a field when his sheave arose and stood up while theirs bowed down to his. In the second dream, he saw the sun, moon, and eleven stars bow down to him (Read Gen. 37:1-11). Now, his double-dream had come true. Here he stood, as the governor of Egypt, with all eleven of his brothers bowing before him.
Joseph is a foreshadowing of Jesus. For Jesus was rejected by His brethren and turned over to the Romans to be crucified. Yet, He arose and is coming again. When he does, every knee will bow and every tongue confess that “Jesus is Lord” (Phil. 2:10-11).
