Michael Fishbane refers to OT "typologies of an historical nature," as a kind of
inner-biblical interpretation (Biblical Interpretation in Ancient Israel [Oxford: The
Clarendon Press, 1985], 358-68).  You might want to write to him concerning his
mistaken terminology.

I dare not ask why "intertestamental" doesn't qualify as "inner biblical."
