There is indubitably a verbal resemblance between the Greek (LXX) version of Joel 3:2: καὶ συνάξω πάντα τὰ ἔθνη “and I shall gather together all the nations” and Mt 25:32: καὶ συναχθήσονται ἔμπροσθεν αὐτοῦ πάντα τὰ ἔθνη “and before him will be gathered together all the nations”. συνάξω and συναχθήσονται are two forms (future active and future passive ...

As noted in an earlier answer (@ Alan Fuller),The similarities between Joseph's vision and the one in the Apocalypse are often noted. When i read in Genesis 37:9-10 about the sun moon and eleven stars, i see this scripture being reflected in the book of Revelation Chapter 12:1-2.There we also see a reference to the sun,moon and stars.The woman in the ...

In my understanding of scripture both Joel and Matthew are referring to the judgment of God on the nations that are live at the end of the tribulation. Christ is coming to establish his Kingdom and to judge the living who have been unrighteous in relation to their personal kindness toward a Israel However in Revelation those who stand there in judgment are ...

The answer to the question may vary depending on the hermeneutic one employs. However I would suggest that the context of Joel 3:2 is the return of Judah after the Babylon captivity, notice that we read "whom they have scattered among the nations." that seems to a reference to the sacking of Jerusalem in 586BC. Matt 25 and Rev 20 are both in reference to ...

מָה הַחֲלוֹם הַזֶּה אֲשֶׁ[ר חָלָמְתָּ הֲ]בוֹא נָבוֹא, אֲנִי וְאִמְּךָ וְאַחֶיךָ, לְהִשְׁתַּחֲו‍ֹת לְךָ אָרְצָה “What is this dream that you have dreamed? Shall we really come, I and your mother and your brothers, to bow before you to the ground?” (Genesis 37:10). “Rabbi Levi said in the name of Rabbi Hama son of Rabbi Hanina: Jacob thought that revival of ...

As noted above, Rachel was deceased so it is a little hard to understand what Abraham was getting at. In the early church the OT stories were seen as types of Christ and the church. The similarities between Joseph's vision and the one in the Apocalypse are often noted. Rev 12:1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, ...

Rashi on Genesis 37:10 states the following: Will we come: Isn’t your mother (Rachel) already dead? But he (Jacob) did not know that the matters referred to Bilhah, who had raised him (Joseph) as [if she were] his mother (Gen. Rabbah 84:11). Our Rabbis, however, derived from here that there is no dream without meaningless components (Ber. 55a/b). Jacob, ...

As a literary construction, there are three short stories which justify resentment on the part of the brothers, followed by the decision of the brothers to get rid of Joseph. First, in Genesis 37:3-4, Jacob gives Joseph a coat of many colours, demonstrating to the brothers that he loved Joseph more than he loved them. In the first of two dreams reported ...

Since the 11 stars were his brothers, doesn't it stand to reason the sun and moon was his father and mother. I am not sure about your conclusion that his father didn't bow. It would not have been hard to once he realized what Joseph had been through and that he was yet alive. I do know that his mother didn't bow as she died. However, if we look at the ...
