“Give your strength to your servant and save the son of your handmaid.” - Psalms 86:16
Does this prefigure Jesus giving Mary to us as our Mother in John 19:26-27?
“Once for all I have sworn by my holiness; I will not lie to David.” - Psalms 89:35
Does God’s covenant with David prefigure His covenant with the Church in Matthew 16:18?
Q3. Can you recommend any books or online resources that explore biblical prefigurement in a way consistent with Catholic teachings? I know that one can invalidly twist some verses into supposed prefigurements, but I am specifically looking for those that are recognized by the Church. Are there more beyond those in Matthew?
Thanks so much!
