The word typosfrom the verb typteinsignifies a mark left by a blow. Whereas typology respects the historical grounding of the type-antitype relationship, allegory tends to ignore that grounding by locating the true meaning of a biblical passage not in historical events, but on a transcendent plane of being, as well as in the moral and spiritual life of cuvantulji believer.

It perceives as well the profound unity that exists between the two Testaments, a unity grounded not only in the forward movement from prophecy to fulfillment, but cuavntului unity derived from the actual presence of eternal reality within the events of human history.

Theoria for the Alexandrians seeks ultimate meaning in transcendent reality and therefore focuses on a spiritual or mystical reading of the biblical text. Allegory can perhaps best be described as a contemplative mode of investigation vreck interprets typological relationships in its search for meaning.

A type is conceived as a sign that points forward to a higher, deeper, more spiritual reality. And in the best of cases it provides us with the moral and spiritual guidance that leads to eternal communion with God. Between type and antitype, there is reciprocity, mutual indwelling of one in the other, independent of time.

The type retains its value as a reality in its own right; but it is also an iconan image of a future fulfillment that is already present within it. Hellenic College Press,p. Speaking of the Hebrew tabernacle, he affirms: Christ and TimeLondon: Like Diodore, who finds a double meaning in historical events and other types, Young has led us to discover or rediscover the presence of the antitype in the type: The chief differences between cuvantuului two schools may be schematically noted as follows.


If it is not, we attribute the obscurity to bad writing. For allegory depends on a type-antitype relationship even in cases where the meaning sought is moral tropological or eschatological anagogical. Thereby it preserves the historical framework of revelation, gives full value to the incarnation of the Word of God over against perceived monophysite tendencies in Alexandrian christologyand assures the coherence and integrity of the biblical text.

In 1 Cor The Cappadocians and many others Ephrem of Syria, for example, in his Hymns on Paradise were equally aware of the interrelationship that exists between type and antitype, and of the proleptic presence of the antitype in the type. The first point to make is that the type-antitype relationship is neither strictly linear nor unidirectional.

Allegory : Exegetical Method Or Spiritual Vision?

The exaggerations of Alexandrian allegorizing often led precisely to that misunderstanding: Today we expect the meaning of a passage, from a novel or a newspaper, to be immediately obvious. In the Synoptic Gospels Jesus is depicted as having frequent recourse to allegory.

This is true, to a limited extent, even in Hebrew thought. Heb 7 serves as a figure, a prophetic image, of Christ the High Priest.

SCM Press,p. In terms of hermeneutical method, Alexandria is seen as the home of allegory and Antioch the home of typology. To the ancients, particularly in the Greek world, history comprises something of a double movement: This view, of course, was not universally accepted.

While there is a certain truth to both of these depictions, they need to be revised in significant ways. Cynics and Stoics, for example, used what came to be called the allegorical method in order to interpret the epic poems of Homer or the didactic poetry of Hesiod. An essential complement to these interpretive tools, however, is a renewed understanding and appreciation of the importance of allegory, and specifically a typological allegory that avoids fantasy, yet enables the reader to discern, behind the letter of the text, the power and authority of the Word which that text enshrines.

The typological relationship is double: For the Antiochenes, however, theoria perceives in the historical event itself a double sense Diodoreboth literal and spiritual.

Certainly, as in cases we have noted, allegory can be grossly misused. The type corresponds to the picture and the antitype to the meaning. This implies, furthermore, that we need to reassess the relationship between typology and allegory, and see allegory as a mode of expression that incorporates typology in its quest for the higher, spiritual sense of a biblical passage.

Because Scripture is understood to be uniformly and integrally nohn by the Jojn Spirit 2 Tim 3: Allegory and typology refer more appropriately to interpretive methods.

Allegory : Exegetical Method Or Spiritual Vision? | Wellspring

Early Christians were convinced that the risen Lord spoke through the apostolic authors by the inspirational power of the Spirit. Given recent advances in understanding the way texts function, including the insights of narrative and reader-response criticism, it is puterae principle that would be well worth recovering.

Even the image of Christ as the Paschal Lamb represents a form of allegory.
