Types and Shadows
Hebrews 10:1 ESV
For since the law has but a shadow of the good things to come instead of the true form of these realities, it can never, by the same sacrifices that are continually offered every year, make perfect those who draw near.
The writer to the Hebrews tells us that the "Types" are but the "SHADOW OF GOOD THINGS TO COME, AND NOT THE VERY IMAGE OF THE THING." . That is, the Old Testament "Types" are but "SHADOWS." But there cannot be a "shadow" without some "REAL THING" to make it. And a "shadow" is not the "very image of the thing," for a shadow is out of proportion, and is an imperfect representation of the thing it reveals. So the Old Testament Types are "shadows" in the sense that they are not the "Real Thing," and are but imperfect revelations of it.
Hewbrews 10:
Genesis
Genesis 49
A "Type" then is some "person," or "event," or "ceremony" that is recorded to "foreshadow" some future "person," or "event," or "ceremony."
- The New Testament is "enfolded" in the Old Testament, and the Old Testament is "unfolded" in the New.
- "AS in Adam all die, even SO in Christ shall all be made alive." .
- "AS the days of Noah were, SO shall also the corning of the Son of Man be." .
"The New is in the Old contained; The Old is by the New explained."
The New Testament is "enfolded" in the Old Testament, and the Old Testament is "unfolded" in the New.
- "AS Moses lifted up the serpent in the Wilderness, even SO must the Son of Man be lifted up." .
"The New is in the Old contained; The Old is by the New explained."
"The New is in the Old contained; The Old is by the New explained."
The New Testament is "enfolded" in the Old Testament, and the Old Testament is "unfolded" in the New.
- A "Type" then is some "person," or "event," or "ceremony" that is recorded to "foreshadow" some future "person," or "event," or "ceremony."
Joseph is a type and shadow of Christ - (List)
Genesis 49:
Genesis 50:20 ESV
As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today.
As for you - Who was the you?
You meant evil against me - What was the evil?
But god meant it for good - What was the good?
To bring it about that many people should be kept alive - Who are the people?
As they are today -
Acts 2:22
Peter gives us the answers in the New Testament -
Acts 2:22–24 ESV
“Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man attested to you by God with mighty works and wonders and signs that God did through him in your midst, as you yourselves know— this Jesus, delivered up according to the definite plan and foreknowledge of God, you crucified and killed by the hands of lawless men. God raised him up, loosing the pangs of death, because it was not possible for him to be held by it.
As for you - Who was the you? Men of Isreal
Y
This Jesus, delivered up according to the definite plan and foreknowledge of God -
Just like Joseph, Jesus was in the definite plan and foreknowledge of God
He doesn’t male a mistake
You’re here “Only” because of the definite plan and foreknowledge of God
No entitlement thinking!!!
You meant evil against me - What was the evil? This Jesus, you crucified and killed. - Joseph’s brothers left him for dead
But god meant it for good - What was the good? God raised him up.
Loosing the pangs (Great suffering) of death…
Because it was not possible for him to be held by it.
The grave represents the prison for Joseph…
You my feel like something is holding you down not but It can’t stop you!!!
To bring it about that many people should be kept alive - Who are the people? I am the people, Because of Christ I have eternal life.
As they are today - It’s All Good…
It’s All Good
I’m alive today because of Christ
