The Old Testament is relevant.
To the world in general all of Scripture is irrelevant because most people on the earth are unbelievers so the Bible is just a work of fiction. A smaller group of unbelievers attack the Bible to justify their belief system of evolution, humanism, and atheism. Its always been curious if you don’t believe in the Bible why do you care if some do? Satan uses lies and doubt to try and make believers turn from God. What does God say about the Old Testament:
2 Timothy 3:
16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: (AV)
As we have stated before, because of the Authority of Scripture, the above verse is from God himself and it clearly states that All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, so that includes all the words in the Bible including the Old Testament! But wasn’t the Mosaic Law only for the nation Israel and we as believers are under the New Testament and the Covenant of Grace, so isn’t the Old Testament just that old and irrelevant?
The Old Testament has so much more in it than just the Mosaic Law for the nation Israel. The Old Testament gives us the history of origins by describing the creation. It gives us the reason for man’s fall and the need for a Savior. It gives us the Ten Commandments as a way we should live our life for God and how we live our life with our fellow man. It gives us the unfolding redemptive plan of Jesus Christ through types and shadows of revealing Christ’s presence through his interacting with people before his birth.
The New Testament is the Old Testament fully revealed!
May God Bless you,
