Job 29:2-3 (KJV) Job- A Type of Christ

Job 29:2-3 (KJV)
Oh that I were as in months past, as in the days when God preserved me;When his candle shined upon my head, and when by his light I walked through darkness;
No one person in the Bible is a perfect type of Jesus Christ. We do, however, find types of Christ in a great many Old Testament characters such as Joseph, David, Solomon and, in this piece of his account, Job.
He speaks of the glory of former daysJob 29:2-3
Christ first setting is heavenly glory. He laid that down to identify with and become man but He always looked to the day of His restored glory.
He did the work of deliveranceJob 29:12-14
Through His own righteousness and personal sacrifice many are delivered from sin and sing for joy.
Job is a judge of the wicked and brings vengeance for the bereft.Job 29:17
The believer need never seek vengeance as he is assured God will make all things right.
He prophesied his deathJob 29:18-20
It was the death burial and resurrection of Christ that purchased our liberty.
Upon His Words hang the very souls of menJob 29:21-22
The Word of God is the most important thing a man possesses in this life.
It is for His Word we assemble and waitJob 29:23-24
This is church. We gather to hear His very Word.
He gives us direction leadership weapons and comfortJob 29:25
All of it from His Word
The type continues into Job chapter 30. I leave to the interested reader to develop this likenesses.
