This study seeks to ascertain whether there are indicators of typology within the Old Testament. Various elements that comprise biblical typology such as the historical aspect, divine design, prophetic aspect, Steigerung (intensification), and eschatology are traced in a number of texts that deal with the Exodus motif. Chapter 1 surveys the perception and use of typology throughout the centuries up to the present. Chapter 2 seeks to establish the basic elements that are part of a biblical typology in passages that are directly linked to or describe the Exodus in the Pentateuch. Chapter 3 seeks to trace these elements throughout the prophetic writings that deal with the Exodus motif. This study concludes that there is, indeed, a type/anti-type relation that connects the Old with the New Testament which has various indicators already within the Old Testament.
