We trace God’s hand as He works out the deliverance of His people from the famine. Messiah would ultimately come from them so that we might be saved today. We understand how Joseph is acting to test his brothers and to see if there is any repentance among them for their treatment of him before he reveals himself to them.

In executing this great design, God gives many glimpses of Christ in the life and circumstances of Joseph and we examine them, as well as applying to ourselves the practical wisdom that this text contains on issues such as the relative merits of spiritual and earthly riches.
