"Typey-ness" (Sermon Preview)

From Wikipedia:

Truthiness is the quality by which a person purports to know something emotionally or instinctively, without regard to evidence or to what the person might conclude from intellectual examination. Stephen Colbert popularized the word during the first episode (October 17, 2005) of his satirical television program The Colbert Report, as the subject of a segment called "The Wørd."

While ruminating and discussing this week's OT text, from Numbers 21, I was reminded of Colbert's recently coined word. Since Numbers 21 is so rich in typology, with many connections and foreshadowings of Christ, could we say it has high "Typey-ness"?
