Overview

Read the Bible with Fresh Eyes as You See Scripture’s Promise-Shaped Patterns

When you read the Bible, have you ever noticed parallels between certain people, events, and institutions?  Should we understand Noah as a kind of new Adam, and if so, does that somehow point us to the second Adam? How are we to interpret these similarities?

In Typology-Understanding the Bibles Promise-Shaped Patterns, author James M. Hamilton Jr. shows that the similarities we find in the Bible are based on genuine historical correspondence and demonstrates how we recognize them in the repetition of words and phrases, the parallels between patterns of events, and key thematic equivalences. When read in light of God’s promises, these historical correspondences spotlight further repetitions that snowball on one another to build escalating significance.

This book stimulates fresh thinking on the relationship between the Old and New Testaments and will help pastors, preachers, and students better understand the dynamics of inner-biblical interpretation. It explores several of the “promise-shaped patterns” we see in the Old Testament including:

  • Adam and New Adam
  • Prophets, Priests, and Kings
  • The Righteous Sufferer
  • Creation
  • Exodus and New Exodus
  • Marriage

Hamilton shows that the prophets and sages of Israel learned to interpret Scripture from Moses and his writings. And by tracing the organic development of subsequent biblical patterns, he explains how these patterns created expectations that are fulfilled in Christ. Jesus himself taught his followers to understand the Old Testament in this way (Luke 24:45), and the authors of the New Testament taught the earliest followers of Jesus how to read the Bible through a typological lens.

Typology-Understanding the Bible’s Promise-Shaped Patterns equips pastors, bible teachers, students, and serious Bible readers to understand and embrace the typological interpretive perspective of the biblical authors. You will learn to read the Bible as it was intended by its original authors while cultivating a deeper love and appreciation for the Scriptures.

    I was fortunate enough to get my hands on an advance copy. This is far and away the most useful book on this topic of typology and fulfilment. Will feel like wonderfully familiar ground to anyone that enjoys the Bible Talk podcast. What sets this book apart is Jim’s insistence on and clear explanation of authorial intent. How Moses et al, guided by the Divine author, clearly intend these types through use of grammar, and structure, and their progression throughout scripture, as further writers alluding and quoting build on these author intended types, with again explicitly intended fulfilment of them. Personally found it incredibly helpful thinking through the themes of the seed of the woman and seed of the serpent.
