A Biblical "type" prefigures an event or person that hasn't happened yet. Similarities:

  1. Everyone had to have a lamb for salvation,
  2. Requirement for a spotless lamb,
  3. Lamb was to be a young male
  4. 4-days given to examine the lamb,
  5. Had to be slain in public,
  6. None of the bones should be broken,
  7. Blood shed is confirmation of salvation granted.
Gesture sprinkling the blood on the door makes the sign of the cross.  Lamb's body held open by two sticks in the shape of a cross.
