OLD TESTAMENT

The largest portion of the Bible belongs to the Old Testament. But this contains all the written instructions, not for Christianity, but for the Jewish religion. So that begs a question:

HOW SHOULD CHRISTIANS APPROACH THE OLD TESTAMENT?

Christianity and Judaism form two separate phases of the same God's work with mankind. For that reason, the Old Testament contains many lessons for the Christian. There we discover the nature of God and the rich promise of the coming Saviour. In the Old Testament, God's thoughts and reactions to sin are outwardly expressed, righteous men are rewarded, the unrighteous are punished. We don't see this play out in the New Testament the same way – so the Old then gives us a glimpse of how God thinks and feels towards sin, and how He will eventually deal with unrighteousness at the last judgement, after this season of grace is over. Fundamental to understanding the purpose of the Old Testament is the subject of the covenants. Every Christian will be enriched by a deeper appreciation of this topic.
