“Typology” is a fancy word for how God put intricate details about Jesus throughout the stories of the Old Testament. I’m not talking about prophecy here, although there is a relationship between typology and prophecy. I’m saying that Jesus is the main topic of the Bible so much that God shaped history and people’s lives so that the Bible would become a beautiful literary tapestry that shows Jesus throughout its pages. From the story of Joseph going from slavery and presumed death to the right hand of Pharaoh as a savior of many, to the feasts of Israel demonstrating the very nature and mission of Jesus to die for our sins.
In today’s interview I will explain what “typology” is, give a number of examples of it, and answer objections to it.
THIS is my 27 part series on Jesus In The Old Testament, the most rewarding and exciting topic I have ever had the pleasure of teaching!
