This article considers a typological pattern developing in Scripture, namely, that of an Adamic figure, Joseph, within the Pentateuch and then stretching through the exilic figures of Mordecai and Daniel, and into the New Testament. The author considers this in light of the question of whether such typology stands merely as an act of reading or as a part of writing. He argues that such typology exists within the OT as an act of writing and not merely a way of reading.
This article looks at what typology is, and how it can help us interpret the Old Testament. Typology actually shows that the temporal and theological gap between the Old and New Testament does not hinder our Bible reading, but helps it.
Typology is an important hermeneutical tool. In this article the author surveys four different views of typology: the covenant view, the revised dispensational view, the progressive dispensational view, and the view of Richard M. Davidson. Specific focus is on how each view would (or would not) apply typology to explain the relationship between [[Israel and the church].
The practice of seeing and reading Scripture through the redemptive-historical approach is one that finds its root in the Bible. This article looks at how the apostles read through redemptive-historical eyes, and how the church fathers continued in this practice. It also discusses the place of typology and allegory in interpreting the Bible.
