Anti-Type (See: Typology Principle)

Something that is foreshadowed by a type or symbol, as a New Testament event prefigured in the Old Testament.  For example, when Abraham was given a ram in place of sacrificing his son Isaac on the mountain, this was a “type” of the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus, the “Lamb of God,” on Mount Moriah.  Also, the forty year Exodus period was a “type” of the New Testament Exodus period.  During this time there was manna (Spiritual Food-Gospel), miracles (outpouring of the Holy Spirit), wandering in the wilderness (great commission), and the 1st century saints entering the heavenly eternal Promised Land consummated by AD 70.
