I'm doing my "attempt to re-read the Bible every 6 months" thing still (Luther had the idea first, I'm just imitating him) and I'm at the Joseph stories in Genesis right now.
Interesting typological connections between Joseph and Christ. First, Shem is told that Japheth (that is, the progenitor of most of the Gentiles) will dwell in his tents. Joseph reigns over a kingdom of Gentiles (though mostly Hamites) and Israelites- anticipating the Church which is made up of both Jews and Gentiles, which is the ultimate fulfillment of this promise. Secondly, Joseph is given a coat of many colors. This is the sign of the rainbow given to Noah and suggesting that God will enact peace and not judge but redeem his creation. Revelation 4 sees this most definitively fulfilled in Christ. John sees a rainbow behind Christ on his throne. Lastly, and of course most importantly (this one has been emphasized throughout the history of Christian exegesis!) Joseph was humiliated and oppressed by his own family and then exalted. This was of course true of Christ as well.
