Following the lead of Paul himself (cf. Rom 5:14) there is
another way for creating meaning in the Bible:
the typical sense
The typical sense of Bible texts is the deeper meaning that
some elements (persons, places, things and events) of the Bible
have because God, the divine author of the Bible, intended that
these elements foreshadow/shadow further things.
to understanding the typical sense:
The typical sense of the Bible is created by continuing
revelation or growth in the understanding the Word of God.
Extra-biblical growth in understanding the Word of God is
evidenced in the growth and development of the understanding
of the Trinity, the Incarnation, etc.
