There are different ways to study how the Old Testament anticipates, reveals, promises, or foreshadows Christ. in this pamphlet Christ’s presence in the Old Testament is discerned by using typology. Typology was a very common way to interpret the Old Testament in the early history of the church. When carefully done, typology opens windows into the history of GOd’s activity in the world that otherwise can be easily missed.
By looking for parallels or similarities between biblical people, events, and things, we can see God setting up history for the coming of Christ and doing it not simply by speaking a prophetic word, but by arranging the affairs of human beings. When we understand this great truth, we can hope to believe our own lives too point to Christ and rejoice in the Lord of history who makes such wonderful stories of us!
