If you’re a student of the Bible, you’ve probably heard people talk about “types” or “foreshadowings” – I.e. people or events that foreshadow another person, or event further along in history. A great example of this is the Temple in Jerusalem. It was an amazing structure—filled with priceless decor and spiritual symbolism. The earthly temple was a type, or a foreshadowing of the Heavenly Temple. “For Christ did not enter a holy place made with hands, a mere copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us” (Heb. 9:24).
In this bible study series I looked at a well-known Biblical hero--NOAH and how he foreshadowed the life and ministry of Jesus. In Bibe study one we discovered how both Noah and Jesus were agents of rest for God’s people. In Bible study two we discovered that Noah and Jesus were both beacons of light in a dark world. And today—in the final study—Jesus In The Old Testament -- Jesus & Noah Part 3 Faithful Servants—we’ll see how Jesus & Noah were both faithful servants even though they faced great loneliness at times.
