PFT February 21, 2016. Joseph: Demand a Substitute. Genesis 42:21-38
Simeon became the substitute for his brothers. They had no reason to think he would be spared the least whim of displeasure of the Egyptian ruler. Of course, types and pictures breakdown. Christ was left to be the Substitute for God’s elect and He went all the way to suffering and death. Simeon will be spared; Christ was crucified.
