The Other Typology
Paul writes to Timothy exhorting him to preach and teach the doctrine that Paul had passed on to him.
He also wished that Timothy would aspire to a such a character as to silence any who would despise his youth (1 Tim 4:12).
In contrast to being despised for immaturity, Paul commanded Timothy to be a "type of the faithful ones" or a "type of the believing ones".
In this way there is an alternative typology for the Christian to study---the typology of a godly life.
