We are getting ready to study Prophecy and Typology at Emmaus. This will be one of the final sessions in our How to Study the Bible Series.
If you want to go a little deeper, I readily recommend this short book by Dr. Jim Hamilton. The chapters are quick but they are full of gold. Whether you are a parent or a student, this book is a clear and user friendly guide on the topic.
I have been reading a chapter a day and found myself looking forward to engaging it each morning/evening. My favorite chapters are 6-9 which give concise helps on how the Biblical authors used symbolism in the Scriptures.
It might just change the way you read your Bible.
You can find the book on Amazon here. What is Biblical Theology? A Guide to the Bible’s Story, Symbolism, and Patterns.
