ADAM, TYPE OF CHRIST
Romans 5:14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure [tupov, types, like a statue, or style, model for imitation or an incident for warning, en- (ex-) samples] of him (Jesus Christ) that was to come.
INCIDENTS FOR WARNING
1 Corinthians 10:6, 9-11 Now these things were our examples [tupov, types, like a statue, or style, model for imitation or an incident for warning], to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted. . . . 9 Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents. 10 Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer. 11 Now all these things happened unto them (Israel) for ensamples [tupov, types]: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world [ages, plural] are come.
WRITTEN FOR OUR LEARNING
Romans 15:4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
A GREAT CLOUD OF TYPES

DAYS OF NOAH A TYPE
Luke 17:26-27 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
ENOCH TAKEN BEFORE NOAH’S DAYS
Hebrews 11:5 By faith Enoch was translated (removed as in Gen. 2:21 God took Adam’s rib) that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.
ENOCH DID NOT DIE
Genesis 5:23-24 And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years: 24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took [lxx, translated] him.
DAYS OF LOT A TYPE
Luke 17:28-30 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. 30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
ABRAHAM WAS WITH THE LORD
Genesis 18:22-23 And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the LORD. 23 And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked?
CONTRAST ADAM AND CHRIST
1 Corinthians 15:21-22 For since by man (Adam) came death, by man (Christ) came also the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
