At this point, the article becomes a little more technical. Before posting any more of it, I'd like to know if this is helping anyone.
This is an interesting article, to be sure. I am not sure, though, if he will succeed in eventually making his point. He is suggesting that some OT passages were typologies that the NT writers used to apply to the life of Christ. Some examples of this in the OT were (from the above articles):
In Isaiah 54:7ff, Isaiah uses the Flood Judgment as a type of the coming Judgment on Israel:
Also in the category of judgment is the pair (Sodom, exile) in Dt 29.23-24:
These typologies work because the upcoming event is like the previous one (a Flood judgment <-> judgment on Israel). Trying to apply a typology to Jesus from some of the other passages is not nearly as neat and simple (like Is 7:14, Hos 11:1, Mic 5:2) because the passages are actually used outside of their context.
On other hand, I would
agree that the Jesus "prediction" passages are midrashic reinterpretations of the OT passages against the life of Christ. I would say that Matthew created the story of Jesus going to Egypt and applied it to the life of Christ to prove a different point - Israel came out of Egypt and Moses gave them the law, but Jesus is the newer and greater Moses and supercedes the law.
