In his

z. Iofeph

was

feat

by

his fa-

ther

to vilite

his

brethren

in

the wilderneffe

:

So

was

Chrift

fent

to

feeke

his

brethren wandring

in

the wil-

dernefl'e,he

was feet to

the

of

Ifrael.

As

at

yeares,

Iofeph

was

preferred

to

his

Office

by

:

Si

at

Chrift

entred

by

So is

the Church

as

a

pure

Virgin given

by

the Father to

Jefus

as

:

All

and

him that cornmeth

As

Iofeph

out

of

'Pharaohs garners feeds

all

Egypt,

all

his

houfe, and

the nations

;

whence

in Gen.

he

is

called

the

feeder

of

Ifrael,

and

allow,

that

is,

a

roche

or

refuge

to his brethren

:

So

Jefus

Chrift

is

the

feeder

of

Ifrael,

and

of

all

the

family

ofGod

in

all

Nations

of

the earth,

not

with

temporali

food

onely,

but

with

the

Manna

Word

and

Sa-

craments,

and

his

owne

fleth

and

blood, the incorrup-

tible

and

indeficient bread

and

water

of

the

prifon,

and

a

comforter

of

the

prifoners,

affuring

the Butler

of

his

life,

and

recovery

of

his

place

:

So

jefas Chrift

at

his

tent,

was

Lord

over death

and

the

grave,

having command of

them

,

and

and

6. As Iofeph

doth

all

the

good
