Written by on 09/09/2016

Our next show is a discussion of Old Testament typology. We are going to look at how certain Old Testament persons, places, and things foreshadow Jesus Christ and the New Testament realities associated with the Man-God.

Russian icon of the Old Testament Trinity by Andrey Rublev, between 1408-25. Seeing the Holy Trinity in the three angels that appeared to Abraham at the Oak of Mamre (Gen. 18:1-15) is an instance of typology, just as of Jonas in the belly of the fish (feature image, top) is a type of Christ in the tomb (Matt. 12:40).
