The Old Testament is written for our learning For "whatsoever things were written aforetime (Old Testament) were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope." (Rom.15:4) Furthermore "brethren (saints, men and women) I would not that ye should be ignorant how...all these things (that happened to the children of Israel) happened unto them for "ensamples."1 ( "types"- models, sketchy outlines. Strong's Greek) Jesus said, "think not that I have come to destroy the Law ( the types, models, shadows)...I am not come to destroy but to fulfill..." (Matt.5:17-19) In fact Jesus said that He would fulfill every "jot" (the smallest letter in the Hebrew alphabet) and every "title." (the accent of certain letters). Therefore all the types and shadows of the Law (which includes Israel's journey from Egypt to Solomon's Temple) are to be fulfilled (completed) in us the Church, because we are the body of Christ. (Rom.8:1-4; 3:21-31, Heb.10:1) So lets start in Egypt...what picture do you see for us in Egypt?
