Genesis 49:22 Joseph is a fruitful bough, A fruitful bough by a fountain; His branches run over the wall

Genesis 49:22 Joseph is a fruitful bough, A fruitful bough by a fountain; His branches run over the wall.

Genesis 49:22 Joseph is a fruitful bough, A fruitful bough by a fountain; His branches run over the wall.

Joseph as a fruitful bough typifies Christ as the branch (Isaiah 11:1) for the branching out of God through His believers as His branches (John 15:1, 5). In this verse the fountain signifies God, the source of fruitfulness (Psalms 36:9; Jeremiah 2:13), and the branches’ running over the wall signifies that Christ’s believers as His branches spread Christ over every restriction, magnifying Him in all circumstances (Philippians 1:20; 4:22; Philemon 10). (Genesis 49:22, Footnote 1 in Recovery Version Bible)

In the restoration the coming Christ will be a sprout that comes forth from the stump of Jesse and a branch from his roots. Israel, especially the house of David, was like a tall tree. However, because of Israel’s degradation, that tree was cut down, leaving only a stump with its roots. Both Mary and Joseph were descendants of David, part of the royal family, but they had become poor and were people of a low class, living in Nazareth, a despised city, in Galilee, a despised region (Luke 1:26-27). Christ as a sprout came forth from the stump of Jesse, above the earth, signifying that restoration is by life and of life. Furthermore, Christ as a branch came forth from Jesse’s roots, underneath the earth, signifying the depths of the restoring life, to branch out God and bear much fruit. Christ as a sprout and a branch is full of restoring power, deepening power, growing power, and fruit-bearing power. Because of His branching out, the whole world is filled with His fruit. (Isaiah 11:1, Footnote 1 in Holy Bible, Recovery Version)
