But Benjamin's mess

(See Scofield) - (Gen 35:18).

It is important to observe that Benjamin now becomes prominent. Joseph is peculiarly the type of Christ in His first advent, rejection, death, resurrection, and present exaltation among the Gentiles, but unrecognized of Israel. As the greater Benjamin, "Son of sorrow," but also "Son of my right hand," He is to be revealed in power in the Kingdom (Gen 1:26-28).

(See Scofield) - (Zac 12:8).

It is then, and not till then, that Israel is to be restored and converted.

(See Scofield) - (Deu 30:3).

Typically (Gen 45:1); (Gen 45:2) anticipates the revelation prophetically described, (Eze 20:33-36); (Hos 2:14-23) at which time the Benjamin type of Christ will be fulfilled.
