Moses and the Mystery of Christ in Cyril of Alexandria's Exegesis, Part I

McGuckin, John A.

The present paper offers, as an example, a close study of one aspect of his Old
Testament typology. It concerns Cyril’s use of one of the central figures of the biblical narrative, the prophet Moses, and how the Moses stories are used as a complex symbol of direct continuities, indirect continuities, and radical discontinuities, between the Old Dispensation and the Christian Gospel.
