The OT is not good for the Giblet Crowd. Although arguably the NT is even harder.
There are so many things in the Old Testament that are referenced in the New Testament.
Take a class on typology.
I found these to be particularly useful:
The Old Testament is only for those who actually believe in the G-d of Abraham, and realize that everything in the New Testament is founded and based upon its promises. The New Testament is the fulfillment of the Old. Everything in the Old Testament will happen, whether the Replacement Theologians accept it or not. G_d is not a liar, but the the G_d of truth.
Oh, my word! Ping!
All of the First Testimant is prophetic. Revelations says, the scriptures,
the whole Book is the Testimony of Yeshua, and Yeshua is the Spirit of Prophecy.
I know a Missionary who told us that the Gospel was preached at about the same time in Japan and Korea. Korea had translations of the Old and New Testament - Japan had only the New - one took hold, the other not so much.
I am sure there were other factors, but still . . .
Thx for the ping.
The Old testament tells us Messiah is coming....the New Testament that Messiah has arrived....the rest that He’s coming again with power and glory!....
The entire Bible breathes Jesus Christ!
Paul informed us about why the OT is important to Christians in his first letter to the Corinthians:
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
(1Co 15:1-4; KJV)
As he wrote, the OT pointed to Jesus. It is the key to understanding the New Testament and is often overlooked because most Christian see it through a lens of Grecian philosophy and Church council decrees which flow from that perspective. Now I’m not from the Hebraic Roots movement or the modern iteration of the Ebionites. However, I do agree with them on the principle that one must look at the New Testament with a good knowledge of the culture God made use of to produce his word, the whole thing. So that means a thorough knowledge of the Old Testament along with a good foundation of knowledge of the ancient Hebrew culture.
That doesn’t mean becoming Torah observant, Paul argued vehemently against that for good reason. It just means gaining the knowledge needed for understanding.
The entire Bible is special revelation
Knowledge of divine law requires both
Come February 6th, The “Pray For The Peace of Jerusalem” Thread on FR will be celebrating its 8th year.
All OT, all the time! :-)
But I’ll bet that 90% of the Ping List are Christians.
Most of us LOVE the OT! :-=)
Oh, I don’t know. How about for it recognizing Judaism?
Over and over again, Elohim says the He declared the end from the beginning. The Torah is were it was written down for us. The equal letter skip code that describes the 2016 Presidential Election is in the Book of Deuteronomy. Those who disregard this do so at their own peril.
Yet very little to do with Mary.
I would think you would want to know the Old Testament, because it contains the 48 prophecies fulfilled by Jesus Christ.
The “Old Testament” is the totality of the scriptures that Yeshua and his disciples preached!
The Gospel is found only in the “Old Testament.”
>> “The entire Bible breathes Jesus Christ!” <<
And therein lies the problem for the Nicolaitans, whose job is to steer us from our savior to man for our answers.
