Genesis 37 - Key


And they took Joseph's coat, and killed a kid of the goats, and dipped the coat in the blood;

I noticed how Joseph was destined to be killed, but the goat was killed instead of him, and the goat's blood was like a substitute for his blood. That reminded me of how Jesus Christ dying and shedding his blood on the cross is like the sacrifice of a lamb, a substitute for our sins.


And he knew it, and said, [It is] my son's coat; an evil beast hath devoured him; Joseph is without doubt rent in pieces.

Jacob assumed those things, but he was mistaken. I'll work on not being a pessimist.
