Since the beginning of the new school year in September 2015, Rev Foster has been speaking at two morning assembly meetings each week. His theme for 2015-16 is DV, "Pictures of Christ in the Bible." Moses the eighth picture of Christ 6. His Rejection by his brethren. "And the next day he showed himself unto them as they strove, and would have set them at one again, saying, Sirs, ye are brethren; why do ye wrong one to another? But he that did his neighbour wrong thrust him away, saying, Who made thee a ruler and a judge over us?" (Acts 7:26-27). This is very sad. Sadder still is it to read of Christ, "He came unto His own, and His own received Him not" (John 1:11). This same line was before us when we considered Joseph. He was rejected by his brethren. So it was with Christ. Israel said, "We will not have this Man to reign over us" (Luke 19:14). Christ's rejection was by the nation's representatives. "And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people and the chief priests and the scribes came together, and led him into their council, saying, Art thou the Christ? tell us. And he said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not believe," Luke 22:66- 67. "And the whole multitude of them arose, and led him unto Pilate. And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, saying that he himself is Christ a King," Luke 23:1-2. But "the common people heard him gladly," Mark 12:37.
