    If I am not mistaken, Pastor Russell's first pamphlet (don't remember the name of it) was about the anti-typical interpretation of the ark in the wilderness. The material he wrote then was later included in one of the Studies in the Scriptures, volume 4 or 5. He didn't invent the typology about the ark, in fact there are other religions who still use the idea. But the Russellite's went wild with it and found interpretations in almost everything they looked at. I used to have Paul S.L. Johnson's series called 'Epiphany Studies in the Scriptures' and it is hundreds and hundreds of pages of type/antitype interpretations. Very foolish sounding now, but it illustrates the extent to which the Bible Student (and JW) movement was invested in the type/antitype thinking.

    How many of you "studied" the book ALL FOUR TIMES??

    I've conducted or read in too many studies to recall ( or admit to ).

    The fine picture on pg 291 is a real 'Great Crowd' pleaser.
    Grab your stick and head band, apostates!!

    I'm no fan of mind control.

    Reminds me of a very old thread that pointed out that most JW titles sounded a lot more interesting if you add the words "in my pants" to the title, the Revelation book only being the most obvious.

    @kairos: what was the thing with the headbands? Very strange to see so many in one picture.

    Hang on, are you sayin that apostates don't actually wear headbands while brandishing sticks?!!

    I knew my family found it confronting but I thought it was a real thing that we were doing.
