Dreams and the Bible

The most prolific dreamers in the Hebrew Bible are the patriarchs, especially Abraham, Jacob, and Joseph. A particular characteristic of Biblical dreams is that different people, all concerned with the realization of a fundamental event, have dreams with parallel or convergent themes. For instance, in Genesis, Joseph, Jacob, Jacob's father, the pharaoh, and the pharaoh's officers all dream about the fulfillment of Joseph's destiny. Not all dreams and visions reported in the Bible originate from God, although almost all of them have a divine source.

There are fewer references to dreams in the New Testament, and there is no record of Jesus' dreams, although the Gospels, Acts, and Revelation continue to present the experience of God-inspired dreams. The New Testament contains such dreams as Joseph's dreams, Peter's trance dream, the dream of the wise men, and the dream of Revelation. Some of the more significant dreams of the New Testament are found in St. Matthew's gospel, which reports the announcement of Christ's conception, an event revealed directly to Joseph while he is awake: "Behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost" (Matt. 1:20). The flight into Egypt is connected to three dreams: the dream of the wise men, who are warned not to return to Herod; the dream in which an angel tells the Holy Family to go into Egypt to escape Herod; and, after Herod's death, the dream in which an angel again appears to Joseph in Egypt, telling him to return to the land of Israel.

One of the most curious dreams in the New Testament is that of the wife of Pontius Pilate, who urges her husband to release Jesus, rather than Barabbas, "for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him" (Matt. 27:19). Biblical dreams are almost all fulfilled, but in this case the advice in the dream is not followed, and Jesus is crucified.2
