Redemptive Significance: Noah and the flood, Genesis 6-8
Judgment of the flood foreshadows the judgment that Christ took on himself. Judgment of the flood foreshadows Christ’s second coming (Matthew 24). We have experienced the judgment due to us by virtue of our baptism into Christ (Romans, 6, Galatians 3, 1 Peter 3).
Redemptive Significance: Abraham meeting Melchizedek, Genesis 14
Abraham offers tithe to Melchizedek (meaning “King of Peace”) who is priest of the God most high. This establishes the superiority of Melchizedek’s priesthood over the Levitical priesthood. This paves the way for Christ’s perfect sacrifice that the Levitical priesthood could never offer. First priest mentioned in Scripture. Psalm 110 and Hebrews 7 correlate Messiah/Jesus with Melchizedek. He is the only person in the Bible other than Christ who is priest and king.
Redemptive Significance: Abraham’s sacrifice of Isaac, Genesis 22
Isaac was Abraham’s “only son” (Genesis 22:2) just as Jesus was God’s “only son” (John 3:16). Isaac was spared because God provided a substitute. Jesus was not spared because he was the substitute. Abraham’s obedience to God’s test foreshadows Christ obedience to his own death.
Redemptive Significance: Water from the rock, Exodus 17
The water from the rock was God’s provision for the Israelites in the desert, which foreshadows God providing Christ for his people. In 1 Corinthians 10 Paul explicitly relates Jesus to the water from the rock as spiritual drinking similar to the spiritual drinking in the Lord’s Supper. This provision should never lead to presumption that judgment is not forthcoming.
Redemptive Significance: Bronze serpent, Numbers 21
Jesus says in John 3 that just as the bronze serpent was lifted up for the life of the Israelites so too the Son of Man must be lifted up for the life of his people. If the Israelites looked to the bronze serpent then they would be saved from the serpents’ bites. Likewise, if we look Jesus we will be saved from the destruction that will otherwise come to us.
Redemptive Significance: David and Goliath, 1 Samuel 17
David was God’s anointed instrument to bring destruction to the enemies of God and his people. Jesus is God’s anointed to bringing to an end the sting of death and sin. Likewise, as the shorter catechism says, “Jesus executes the office of king… in restraining and conquering all his and our enemies”.
Redemptive Significance: Queen of Sheba visiting Solomon, 2 Chronicles 9
In the Queen’s eyes Solomon was the epitome of one executing justice and righteousness to sit as king for the LORD. Jesus is the absolute fulfillment and epitome of these things. Paul makes it clear that Jesus is our righteousness and our wisdom. “He is the source of your life in Christ Jesus, whom God made our wisdom, our righteousness and sanctification and redemption (1 Corinthians 1:30).” Also Matthew 12 - Christ being being the better king and temple.
Redemptive Significance: Jonah in the fish, Jonah 1 & 2
Matthew 12 links Jonah’s in the belly of the fish as a type of Jesus’ death and burial leading to resurrection. Jesus also says this is the only sign he will give the Pharisees. Also God rescuing the sailors by the sacrifice of Jonah. An expiation if you will.
