    Hermeneutics: Typology

    [Print] | [PDF] | [Email]

    Typology is a philosophy of history.

    It is also a theory of meaning.

    Typology is a historical theory of meaning, a theory of historical meaning.

    That Matthew can say “Out of Egypt I called My Son” is fulfilled in Jesus isn’t evidence that Matthew was a midrashist.  It’s not merely a hint about how to read the Old Testament.  It’s a pointer to the character of history and the nature of meaning.  Texts mean the way Matthew says Hosea’s text means; history’s contours are the contours that Matthew discerns in Hosea’s reference to the exodus.

    Typology is the beginning of wisdom.
