Description

The early church made extensive use of typology, not just for Christ and His incarnation, but for the sacraments and the work of God as a whole. We have since lost sight of how much of what God did in the Old Testament was meant to inform our understanding of the sacraments and the ongoing work of God in the life of His Church. Reclaiming these typological strands will greatly enrich our awareness of what God is doing through the sacraments in the present day and how He works through them to drive us to His promised future.
