Jesus is the new and better Joseph

Joseph is here at last!

Thank you for your patience

I remember planning this and trying to think of which part of Joseph’s life did we want to borrow to show something true about Jesus and the more I looked for one thing the more I was like ‘they’re just the same!’
So here we have the tale of the beloved son who becomes a suffering servant, is innocent but is punished and who is elevated to being the right hand man and brings reconciliation to his family. BOOM!
It makes me really happy that God is able to plan so meticulously the lives of people thousands of years apart just so we’ll recognise his son when he comes. Also that good planning is clearly a godly quality – every time I make the effort to sit and plan children’s and youth work I’m becoming a little more like my heavenly father.
