as to manifest Him as the living center of the Book.  Only the leading ones are selected.  The teacher or pupil may add others.  For convenience sake they are classified as follows:  (a) Symbol; (b) Type; (c) Analogy; (d) Prophecy.  Though the words symbol and type are not technically distinct, we have agreed to use the word symbol to designate an object or animal that prefigures Christ, as “star” or “lamb,” and the word type to designate a person that prefigures Christ, as Melchizedek or Moses.  We have also agreed to limit the symbols and types to those directly or indirectly mentioned in the New Testament.  By analogy we mean a person who, though widely differing from Christ in many particulars, bears some one resemblance to Him in quality or deed.  These analogies are not mentioned in the New Testament.  The word prophecy in the outline is confined, then, to facts foretold regarding Christ.  Under No. 15 let the teacher call for five or ten (suit the number to conditions) items of peculiar interest, touching the literary form, events, facts, teachings, etc.  This topic is in accord with the first article of the Creed recorded on the opening page of the book.  Under No. 16 let the teacher assign at least one chapter rich in contents for individual search upon the part of the pupils.  Let the pupils record and number their individual finds.  This in accord with the fifth article of the Creed.  The purpose is to cultivate the “seeing eye” and to develop originality in Bible research.
