Once you get a basic grasp of the Old Testament types, the Bible becomes more colorful, more meaningful, more ALIVE! These treasure lie just beneath the surface ready to reward the search of all who desire to learn what God yearns to reveal to us of Himself through these studies. We hope these will be a blessing to you.
