(Numbers 21:4-9) (John 3:14-15) “As Moses lifted up the bronze snake…in the same way, the Son of man must be lifted up…” A number of OT episodes resemble NT episodes; this is referred to as “types.” That is the case in today’s readings. Early Christians used “types” to show Jews how the NT clarified and fulfilled the OT. “In the OT, the NT is concealed; in the NT, the OT lies revealed.” Augustine of Hippo
