It also contains astonishingly impossible prophecies. It's simply stunning when understood.
Here are some of the main types, though I would unfortunately suspect not all are fully articulated here.
Benefit from the works of others:
Egypt is a type of the world system, opposing God's people and trying to keep them in bondage.
Pharaoh is a type of Satan, “the God of this world,” who demands worship, defies God, and desires to enslave God's people.
Israel is a type of the church; delivered from the bondage of the world, lead on a pilgrim journey, and protected by God.
Moses is a type of Jesus, the Redeemer.
Crossing the Red Sea is a picture of the resurrection, which delivers the believer from this present evil world.
The manna pictures Jesus, the Bread of Life (John 6).
The smitten rock is a type of the smitten Jesus, through whose death the Holy Spirit is given.
Amalek is a picture of the flesh, opposing the believer in his pilgrim journey.
The Passover pictures the death of Jesus, the application of His blood for our safety, and the appropriation of His life for our daily strength.
