Genesis 37 contains the familiar story of Joseph's brothers throwing him into a pit and then selling him into slavery.
Joseph was loved by his father, sent to find his brothers, mistreated, and then raised to new life.
This of course foreshadows the same path Jesus would follow many years later. He too was loved by His Father, sent to save the lost, crucified, buried in a tomb, and then raised again.
And moreover, this is our story too! We also are loved, sent, hated, and will be exalted. We are living out the gospel.
