Acknowledging that God used pictures and learning how to interpret those pictures are crucial to a proper and profitable use of the Old Testament. Indeed, if we deny or ignore this means of revelation, we will never rightly understand much of the message of the OT. This is particularly true when it comes to discovering what the OT reveals and teaches about Christ. The OT is filled with picture prophecies of the person and work of Christ. God often said in essence, “Look at this person, thing, or event to see something about who Christ is and what He will do.” These divinely defined picture analogies spoke volumes about Christ. Typology is the technical term for picture prophecy. How to identify types in the OT and how to interpret them are crucial to grasping the redemptive message. The OT types are a good place to discover Christ.
