Jonathan Edwards made many interesting comments, one of which was that

God puts a final and fatal end to the typical state of the Jews, and all things appertaining to it, blots out all of those types at once, and wipes them clean away, and poured the utmost contempt upon them, and covered them with the most dreadful darkness, and destroyed, as by one great fatal, and final blow that whole typical world . . .

That’s strong language!

But why would he say such things?

Because not only is it true, but it is the most powerful statement I know of the truth that Jesus and his spiritual church constitute the true reality to which the types and shadows pointed, and that to attempt to reconstruct any of them in any form today is not only to insult Him, but to hide the reality in the shadows.
