C.S. Lewis; Foreshadowings of Jesus,
"The Suffering Servant" and Israel
C.S. Lewis and to some degree the Early Church as well as Tolkien and others propose that "myth", or more particularly particular myths - of a dying and reborn "Corn God" of virgin birth, etc, foreshadow the historical occurance of Jesus, the non-mythical, the myth become fact. I'd like to shortly attempt a presentation of Israel as being the fulfillment of this myth; the Body of Israel, Yaakov become Israel versus Jesus becoming Israel, his claims to fulfilling all the law, etc, as he is all observant as Israel is, etc. We'll see.
