OT Prophets III; Typology

September 8, 2012

How to understand the Prophets: Biblical Typology

It’s Not;  Allegory Nor Pure Literal.

The typological interpretation of prophecy asserts that the prophets did not so much make singular predictions as proclaim certain theological themes or patterns and that these themes often have several manifestations or fulfillments in the course of human history. These patterns often have their greatest manifestations in the life of Christ or in the eschaton, but there may be one or more other fulfillments elsewhere in human history, especially in the immediate historical context of the prophet.

Examples:

1. Babylon: Rev. 17-18. There is a final Babylon, but there are many Babylons throughout history.

2. Anti-Christs. (1Jo 2:18 NIV) - Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour.

3. The Millennium;  Pre, Post or A?   When Jesus rules on Earth as King of the World.  Based on when the Tribulation happens.

It all depends on how you understand  Mark 13 or Matthew 24-25.

Israel & The Scribes knew the prophets foretold of Their Messiah.

Christians must study and know the Old Testament. (1Jo 3:23-24 NIV)
