Both the direct fulfillment and typological fulfillment approaches are very popular. Here are some resources that are a good place to begin.
A comprehensive typological approach to most of the messianic Psalms can be found in Richard Belcher’s The Messiah and the Psalms.
For direct fulfillment:
- Derek Kidner’s Psalms 1-72 and Psalms 73-150. Kidner sees some typology, but in the case of Psalm 22 for example, he sees it directly speaking of Jesus.
For prosopological fulfillment:
- Patrick Henry Reardon’s Christ in the Psalms.
