Joseph & Jesus

The Revd Prof Oliver O'Donovan reflects on the Old Testament story of Joseph alongside the Easter story.

He says: "I propose to hold the cheerful story of Joseph and his brothers as a mirror up to the story of Christ's betrayal and death. It tells how God sent a man in search of his brothers to rescue them from danger, of how he found them in the end, of how a judgment was accomplished and a reconciliation won."
