Types of Christ.

38 posts in this topic

Joseph is a type of Christ, in respect of two advents. (Gen 37:3 - 4.)

At his first advent Jesus was hated by the majority of the Jews, and they disposed of Him. (Gen 37:27 - 28, & Gen 37:36)

But look what happened, (Gen 41:40 - 42.)

And then, (Gen 41:29 - 30, & Gen 42:1-3.) 

But they did not recognise Joseph their brother, (Gen 42:6 & 8.)

But then, (Gen 45:3 to 8, &  Gen 45:13 - 15.)

Which is how it will be when Jesus returns to for the second advent

Bless you all.

All I am doing is drawing attention to Old Testament pictures of Him who was to come.

     I understand what I think you are trying to say,that Joseph was dipicted as a foreshadow of Christ to come.......or a representation of the promised seed,of course we know there is only ONE JESUS.....but the Old Testament indeed proclaims the eager anticipation of the Messiahs arrival & speaks of Him throughout ,just as Jesus explained to the men as they  walked together down the road after He was risen from the dead................How beautiful it must have been to have Jesus take them through the Scriptures.......Praise Jesus!!!!

They're not types of Christ, but I see what you are getting at.

OK, you guys are confusing me. I've heard of "types of Christ" for decades in sermons and such. (http://www.bible-topics.com/Types-of-Christ.html)

 

Why is there suddenly a problem with this word "type"?

Thank you to all of you who have responded.

 

Could this one, I wonder be yet another type of Christ?

Subject: Jephthah's daughter.

Jdg 11:30   And Jephthah made a vow to the LORD, and said, "If You will indeed deliver the people of Ammon into my hands,
Jdg 11:31   "then it will be that whatever comes out of the doors of my house to meet me, when I return in peace from the people of Ammon, shall surely be the LORD's, and I will offer it up as a burnt offering."
Jdg 11:32   So Jephthah advanced toward the people of Ammon to fight against them, and the LORD delivered them into his hands.
Jdg 11:33   And he defeated them from Aroer as far as Minnith--twenty cities--and to Abel Keramim,[fn1] with a very great slaughter. Thus the people of Ammon were subdued before the children of Israel.
Jdg 11:34   When Jephthah came to his house at Mizpah, there was his daughter, coming out to meet him with timbrels and dancing; and she was his only child. Besides her he had neither son nor daughter.
Jdg 11:35   And it came to pass, when he saw her, that he tore his clothes, and said, "Alas, my daughter! You have brought me very low! You are among those who trouble me! For I have given my word to the LORD, and I cannot go back on it."
Jdg 11:36   So she said to him, "My father, if you have given your word to the LORD, do to me according to what has gone out of your mouth, because the LORD has avenged you of your enemies, the people of Ammon."
Jdg 11:37   Then she said to her father, "Let this thing be done for me: let me alone for two months, that I may go and wander on the mountains and bewail my virginity, my friends and I."
Jdg 11:38   So he said, "Go." And he sent her away for two months; and she went with her friends, and bewailed her virginity on the mountains.
Jdg 11:39   And it was so at the end of two months that she returned to her father, and he carried out his vow with her which he had vowed. She knew no man. And it became a custom in Israel
Jdg 11:40   that the daughters of Israel went four days each year to lament the daughter of Jephthah the Gileadite.

Here we have, "female", type of Christ.

Firstly she is a firstborn, secondly she is a virgin, (a sign of purity, and holy ness), thirdly the expression, "two months", appears, "three times", and three draws our attention to the, "Trinity", and, "two", speaks of the second person of the Trinity.  This young girl who's name is not revealed in the above passage is prepared to lay down her life in order to save her father from the consequences of breaking his vow to the LORD. 

Every blessing.

Edwin.

Type or typology (the study of types) is a known biblically sound pictoral prophetic view as seen through an historic event in the bible. Jesus Himself refers to two distinct type events. One, that He would be in the grave as Jonah was in the belly of the whale. And two, that as Moses put the bronze serpent on the pole in Numbers, so that those who looked upon it would be saved from illness and death, so He would be put on the cross so those who look to Him may be saved. I have a if anyone is interested in learning further.

I'm kind of surprised that this concept seems foreign to some...2nd thread on this subject and the first one was also misunderstood

What I have always heard and been taught^^^^

 

In the other thread, someone thought the op was trying to say there was more than one Christ and that was not at all what was being said

I understand what the op is trying to get but I feel calling them types of Christ is the wrong way to say it-perhaps saying characterizations? or predecessors to christ?

I still disagree-to me there is only one type. there can only be one type-because there is only one Christ.

Pat I think you misunderstand the definition of type. 

 

Type is defined as an action or occurrence in which one event, person, or circumstance is intended to represent another, similar to it in some respects but of more importance and generally future. Scripture describes a type as a shadow of good things to come.

Ok, we get the point. I too agree that 'types of Christ' is the wrong expression regardless of whether it is commonly used or not, however, I do get the Op's point. I think foreshadows of Christ may be a more appropriate expression but I don't think that there's much purpose now in arguing too much about semantics.

Friend, 'type' is the biblical term - consider Rom 5:14 for example when where Paul calls Adam a type, it appears to me that you confusing a 'type' with an 'antitype'.

I don't think some of you understand.  This is a term that is accepted, used and understood by more people than not and an opinion of the term does not factor in.

 

It does not matter what someone's opinion of the word is...it exists and is commonly used by those who study scripture. I don't think some understand ... 

 

At any rate, I guess the op must be wondering how on earth his topic can go off into the woodlands never to be seen again....second time this happens...at least object to something that

is anti-scriptural

 

So you didn't know about this expression before; does it hurt to learn something new?  No one here made it up....

 

Question: "What is biblical typology?"

Answer:
Typology is a special kind of symbolism. (A symbol is something which represents something else.) We can define a type as a “prophetic symbol” because all types are representations of something yet future. More specifically, a type in scripture is a person or thing in the Old Testament which foreshadows a person or thing in the New Testament. For example, the flood of Noah’s day (Genesis 6-7) is used as a type of baptism in1 Peter 3:20-21. The word for type that Peter uses is figure.

When we say that someone is a type of Christ, we are saying that a person in the Old Testament behaves in a way that corresponds to Jesus’ character or actions in the New Testament. When we say that something is “typical” of Christ, we are saying that an object or event in the Old Testament can be viewed as representative of some quality of Jesus.

Which is how it will be when Jesus returns to for the second advent

Bless you all.

I love finding all the comparisons to Christ in the OT.  I kept hearing over and over that it was crucial to read the OT in order to get a full understanding (and picture) of Christ.  I see why now that I read it daily, and sometimes I go in the new testament as well.  Like now, due to my devotional, I am studying John.  There is no other like God's Word;)

Yes, I understand this as the same thing happens to me as I read the OT.  Glimpses of Jesus, our Messiah to come.

Yes, this is what I saw when I read Edwin's post:)  And it's so true, I'm amazed by all the little glimpses of our Messiah in the OT, and not that Joseph, Moses or anyone else "was" Jesus at all, you are right, there is only ONE Jesus;)  and yes PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME:) denise, a sister in Christ
