    What is your favorite type or foreshadow of Christ in the bible?

    Mine actually is Samson:

    The birth of both were foretold by an angel
    He loved an pagan woman- Christ love us as sinners
    He faced a lion on the way to get his bride
    He brought something sweet out of something dead- Christ regenerates us and causes us who were before dead to now bring forth fruit
    He was a deliverer of Gods people
    Both were betrayed for pieces of silver
    Samson was did his greatest feat at his death
    he died between two pillars,as Christ died between 2 other crosses.

    Probably my favorite is Joseph. He's possibly the most detailed and has the most content of all the other types, and, THERE'S NOTHING IN THE SCRIPTURES THAT POINT TO HIM AS A TYPE OF CHRIST. There are at least 100 ‘similarities’ between Joseph and Christ in the scripture. These are just a few of them gleaned from this site: http://www.apocalipsis.org/Joseph.htm

    JOSEPH AS A TYPE OF CHRIST

    There is nothing bad (sinful) mentioned about Joseph or Jesus in scripture.

    Both were loved by their father

    Both rejected by their brothers

    Both Joseph and Christ were unjustly tried, Joseph was unjustly charged with trying to rape Potiphar's wife (Gen 39:1-20).

    Both were unjustly sold see Gen 37:28 and Mat 26:15.

    Both suffered; Joseph in prison and Jesus on the cross.

    Both were later crowned with glory and honour (Gen 41:39-45, Heb 2:9).

    Both delivered men from death

    Genesis 37:3 Now Israel loved Joseph
    Matthew 3:17 "This is my Son, the Beloved, with whom I am well pleased."

    Genesis 37:4 his brothers, they hated him
    John 15:25 They hated me without a cause.

    Genesis 37:8 His brothers said to him, "Are you indeed to reign over us?... So they hated him even more because of his dreams and his words.
    Luke 19:14 We do not want this man to rule over us.

    Genesis 37:11 So his brothers were jealous of him,
    Mark 15:10 it was out of jealousy that the chief priests had handed him over.

    Genesis 37:18 They saw him from a distance, and before he came near to them, they conspired to kill him. Matthew 27:1 the chief priests and the elders of the people conferred together against Jesus in order to bring about his death.

    Genesis 37:23 So when Joseph came to his brothers, they stripped him of his robe
    Matthew 27:28 They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him

    Genesis 37:28 sold him to the Ishmaelites for twenty pieces of silver.
    Matthew 26:15 They paid him thirty pieces of silver.

    Genesis 39:4 Joseph found favor in his sight ...he made him overseer of his house and put him in charge of all that he had.
    John 3:35 The Father loves the Son and has placed all things in his hands.

    Genesis 40:2-3 Pharaoh was angry with his two officers ... and he put them ... in the prison where Joseph was confined.
    Luke 23:32 Two others also, who were criminals, were led away to be put to death with him.

    Genesis 40:13 Within three days Pharaoh will lift up your head and restore you to your office (to one, a message of life)
    Luke 23:43 He replied, "Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise."

    Genesis 40:15 I have done nothing that they should have put me into the dungeon."
    Hebrews 4:15 one who in every respect has been tested as we are, yet without sin.

    Genesis 41:46 Joseph was thirty years old when he entered the service of Pharaoh
    Luke 3:23 Jesus was about thirty years old when he began his work.

    Genesis 41:55 Pharaoh said ... "Go to Joseph; what he says to you, do."
    John 2:5 His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you."

    Genesis 45:1 Joseph made himself known to his brothers.
    Luke 24:31 Then their eyes were opened, and they recognized him

    Genesis 45:7 God sent me before you to preserve for you a remnant on earth, and to keep alive for you many survivors.
    1 John 4:9 God sent his only Son into the world so that we might live through him.

    Genesis 45:12 And now your eyes ... see that it is my own mouth that speaks to you.
    Luke 24:39 Look at my hands and my feet; see that it is I myself.

    Genesis 45:18 Take your father and your households and come to me
    Matthew 11:28 Come to me, all you that are weary ... and I will give you rest.

    Genesis 45:26-28 26 And they told him, "Joseph is still alive! ... Israel said, "Enough! My son Joseph is still alive. I must go and see him before I die."
    Luke 24:5 Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen.

    Genesis 46:30 Then Israel said to Joseph, "Now let me die, since I have seen your face, that you are still alive."
    Luke 2:29 "Now Lord, Thou dost let Thy bond-servant depart in peace, according to Thy work; For my eyes have seen Thy salvation,

    Genesis 47:23 Then Joseph said to the people, ...I have this day bought you
    1 Corinthians 6:19-20 you are not your own? For you were bought with a price”

    Just as Christ now sits at the right hand of God, Joseph sat at the right hand of Pharaoh and all the nations had to come to him for their food.

    There's actually much more to this type, I've just never got around to putting it all together.

    I love the types and allegories in the scriptures. I marvel at the foreknowledge of God that shines through in them, they cause my heart to rejoice in an all knowing and an all powerful God.

    It's like asking, what is my favorite thing about Jesus? I used to have some favorite things, but I'm finding that more and more and love everything about Him mostly equally, because I love Him.

    Does that make the Song of Songs my favorite? No, because I think of the victim on the altar. Where would I be? I think of the dove, gentle who won't quench smoking flax or break a bruised reed. Where else would I go?

    Just tell me the story of :jesus:

    Dunno. Joseph was faithful, I do know.

    I've read somewhere that Potiphar may have been a eunuch!
