In Genesis 41 Joseph is given an unsaved wife-Asenath. She was the daughter of Potpherah who was the priest of On. If I understand correctly, even her name makes a statement of her heathen god. When making Joseph a 'type' of Christ, are we going to far to say that God put His blessing on the marriage between born-again Joseph and unsaved Asenath? If we accept this, aren't we giving our daugther's permission to marry unsaved? We are the bride of Christ. We are now, we were not when we were unsaved. I think that Joseph compromised. He was blessed with sons because we have a merciful God, not because God ordained a marriage between saved/unsaved. Thank you for your input!
