What is an antitype, can you give examples ?

What is an antitype, can you give examples ? yes - an Antitype is the reverse of a type, pointing back.


 The New Testament is in the Old contained whereas, The Old Testament is by the New explained. A type is a foreshadow of things yet to be seen, wherein a hidden "type" is only realised once the New Testament is unravelled, a type can be a person or a symbolic item such as the Ark or a rainbow.See : (Colossians 2:17); and (Hebrews 8:5);

 Antitypes on the other hand are the reality of a type, whereas an old Testament  type points to the New Testament antitype, a New Testament antitype points back to an old Testament type.Examples of types and antitypes are as follows :

1. OT type  : The passover Lamb (Exodus 12:27);2. NT Antitype  : The Lord's Supper (communion) (1 Corinthians 11:25);1. OT type =-Jacob's Ladder (Genesis 28:10-12);2. 2. NT antitype = Jesus The Mediator (1 Timothy 2:5);1. OT type =- Passover (Exodus 12); 2. NT antitype = Christ is our Passover (1 Corinthians 5:7);1. OT type = bronze serpent that when looked upon brought healing (Numbers 21:9);2. NT antitype =  (John 3:14);  Moses lifted up the serpent in the wildernessa "type" is a foreshadow of an antitype, as an antitype is the signpost of the type  As "baptism" would be the antitype of "Noah and the flood" so too Jesus would be the High Priest antitype of Aaron
