Here's a profound prophetic signification. But since the art of interweaving various patterns was introduced, "the coats of colors" are different now from what they seem to have been in patriarchal times, and bear a close resemblance to the varieties of tartan. After bearing Judah, Leah stopped bearing children. [5] In these sources, Benjamin swore an oath, on the memory of Joseph, that he was innocent of theft, and, when challenged about how believable the oath would be, explained that remembering Joseph was so important to him that he had named his sons in Joseph's honour. Cistern, is the Hebrew word, bowr, a word translated, pit, in the following verses. This consequence of failing to recognize their brother Joseph is a remarkable prophecy that reveals the reason why Israel does not have the ability to hear and understand The Word, which is ultimately to recognize and accept Y'shua. a wise and prudent man: and indeed, if being the son of his old age was the reason of his affection, Benjamin had the best claim to it, being the youngest, and born to him when he was still older; and this sense is countenanced by Onkelos, who renders it,"because he was a wise son to him:''and so the reason why he loved him more than the rest was, because of his senile wisdom; though a child in years, he was old in wisdom and knowledge. Shall I and your mother and your brothers actually come to bow ourselves down before you to the ground?” 11 His brothers were jealous of him, but his father kept the saying in mind. So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ. [18], This article is about the Biblical figure Benjamin, son of Jacob. Continuing on, the balance of the story about Joseph shows his function as God's agent in the plan of salvation and the redemption of His people. Another interpretation of Shechem's significance might be that the shepherd's problem is that they did not rise early to seek the Lord's direction but were lazy and self directed. Out of Y'shua will come rivers of living water for all who enter into his glorious rest! [5], Biblical scholars believe, due to their geographic overlap and their treatment in older passages, that Ephraim and Manasseh were originally considered one tribe, that of Joseph. [5] Benjamin is treated as a young child in most of the Biblical narrative,[5] but at one point is abruptly described as the father of ten sons. In the Hebrew Bible unlike Rachel's first son, Joseph, Benjamin was born in Canaan. [15][16] The classical rabbinical tradition adds that each son's name honors Joseph:[5]. (Joseph, the youngest, was born shortly after Jacob had been there for 14 years: Gen 30:25-26, Gen 31:41 [after serving Laban 7 years twice to marry Rachel], but before serving 6 years for Laban’s “flocks.”) Benjamin clearly had not yet been born. This is what is referred to in the book of Romans, chapters 9-11, where Paul expresses the mind of the Lord on the condition of Simeon's binding and the release thereof. Benjamin was born in when Jacob was in Bethel (Gen 35) (meaning all his other children are born when he is in Laban) 8. Why does the narrative say he loved Joseph most because he had been born to him in his old age? In contrast, like the ram that was substituted for Isaac, Y'shua was truly slain as a sacrificial lamb. Here's a chart to illustrate the relative ages of Jacob's children. As Genesis chapter 37 draws to a close, the prophetic foreview is the death, burial, resurrection and ascension of our Lord. 20 Now then, come and let us kill him and throw him into one of the pits; and we will say, ‘A wild beast devoured him.’ Then let us see what will become of his dreams!” 21 But Reuben heard this and rescued him out of their hands and said, “Let us not take his life.” 22 Reuben further said to them, “Shed no blood. Jacob left Padan Aram with these 11 children at the end of the 20 years. This is a most excellent corollary study for those of you with a mind to go deeper. Later rabbinic traditions name him as one of four ancient Israelites who died without sin, the other three being Chileab, Jesse and Amram. 23 then he said to them all: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. Benjamin was about to be brought forth, who was truly the last born son. Now, observe how Benjamin's own birth and naming receives particular emphasis. The latter part of chapter 41 sets forth what is some of the most obvious foreshadowing of Y'shua in the life of Joseph. Now, Joseph, the type, did not actually die, like how his grandfather Isaac did not actually die when Abraham was ready to offer him as the burnt offering. At His baptism, Y'shua received the holy spirit and its help, immediately receiving direction to go into the desert. According to the Hebrew Bible, Benjamin's name arose when Jacob deliberately changed the name "Benoni", the original name of Benjamin, since Benoni was an allusion to Rachel's dying just after she had given birth, as it means "son of my pain". It will be seen in this prophetic context that Egypt is now a symbol of heaven. The restoration of Simeon to the sons of Israel was linked to their dutifully bringing Benjamin before Joseph in Egypt. 18 “If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. And since Jacob was 130 years old when he came to Egypt, Joseph's birth occurred 39 years earlier. It is also worth noting that Benjamin was also Joseph’s favorite brother. Since 73 AD (Masada), with the dispersion of the Jew from the land, the condition of its cities, houses and fields being utterly forsaken eventually did come to pass.

Benjamin is, on one level, a type of the church. By revelation, Joseph interpreted these dreams to him. 5 Now, Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was. And Joseph went forth over the land of Egypt. Joseph was approximately 40 years old. I will just point out here that the faith required for salvation rests upon hearing. The Children of Israel enter the land of Egypt 17 years before the death of Jacob (Gen 47:28) and when Levi is 87 years old.
