Genesis and the first part of Exodus were interesting to read, but now it’s getting a bit strange…..
What do all these laws about what to eat, sacrifices, and how to build the Tabernacle have to do with us today?
Why should we bother reading them?
The answer is SO much more interesting and helpful than you can imagine! Not in that we should follow the laws and regulations in the same way the Children of Israel did, but in what these things foreshadowed in what was coming.
The study of this foreshadowing of what was coming is called “Typology.” The podcast not only discusses this topic but gives you reasons and encouragements why you should read these books that most people skip. From the middle of Exodus through Leviticus and Numbers, it can be hard to read and even harder to understand, but God put this material in our Bibles for a reason and this podcast will help you understand how much it will help you grow in your faith even if it doesn’t seem like it when you start.
Below the podcast are the notes from the podcast and a link I promised I’d give that has an excellent article on typology.
