Resources for the Study of Typology
Some time ago I wrote an entry on What is Typology? There I introduced the subject and explained what I was up to in a series of previous posts (see that article for the links). But I’m frequently asked what resources I would recommend for those looking to explore the topic further. Here’s a list I threw together with titles listed in no particular order.
- According to Plan: The Unfolding Revelation of God in the Bible, Grame Goldsworthy
- What is Biblical Theology? James M. Hamilton Jr.
- Kingdom Through Covenant, Peter Gentry and Stephen Wellum. There’s a very helpful discussion of typology within the first 100 pages.
- Knowing Jesus Through the Old Testament, Christopher J. H. Wright
- We Become What We Worship: A Biblical Theology of Idolatry, G. K. Beale
- Handbook on the New Testament Use of the Old Testament: Exegesis and Interpretation, G. K. Beale
- From Typology to Doxology: Paul’s Use of Isaiah and Job in Romans 11:34-35, Andy Naselli
- Typos: The Typological Interpretation of the Old Testament in the New, Leonhard Goppelt
- New Dictionary of Biblical Theology: Exploring Scripture’s Unity & Diversity
- Newer edition of The Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospel (article on ‘typology’)
- Kittel’s Theological Dictionary of the New Testament, vol 8. pgs 246-259
For those in the “know,” what other books, lectures, or articles would you recommend?
