This is the pinnacle of the story between the Joseph and the brothers. This chapter is broken up into two pictures, or illustrations. One of regeneration, verses 1-17, and the second of saving grace and it’s fruit. In the intro we added a third picture of the brothers sinful nature brought out in chapter 37. Doing this we have a picture of all of our lives to some degree who are saved. Our fallen nature apart from Christ, our point of regeneration, and our salvation and its fruit.
