If you really want to be blown away, I suggest doing a comparative study of Moses and Jesus. What you will see is that their lives and what they did and the parallels are incredibly similar. Moses is literally a "type" of Christ. He was the shadow of Christ in a sense.
Moses was sent by God to lead his people out of bondage. He led them for a period of 40 years through the wilderness before they inherited the promise land of Canaan. Compare that to Jesus coming and leading His people for a period of also 40 years until they (and we) would inherit the spiritual Promise Land at the final coming of the Lord and the destruction of Jerusalem.
Paul himself wrote that the surrounding events of Moses and the wilderness wandering "were our examples" (I Corinthians 10:6), and that "they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world (aion-age) have come" (verse 11) Remember, Paul was writing to real living people when he wrote this. He says "the end of the age has come upon us". Not you and me, but them back then.
The exodus out of Egypt and into the promised land, by the children of Israel under Moses, is a direct shadow of the exodus of the New Testament generation from the cross to the entrance into the eternal land of rest at the destruction of Jerusalem.
With each covenant, a 40 year transition period followed the initial act of deliverance, before the entrance into the land of promise.
Christ specifically told the disciples at the last supper, "I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself, that where I am, there ye may be also" (John 14:2-3).
This reception was into, what is described in Hebrews as, "a better country, that is a heavenly one" (Hebrews 11:16). This promise was in regards to the fulfillment of redemption and eternal life in the kingdom of God. Entrance into this Kingdom of God was corporately given to believers at the end of the 40 years from the cross to the coming of Christ.
