  • The Old Testament teachs us how to obey God, the New Testament tells us why.

    Ecclesiastes 12:10-14 ESV (10) The Preacher sought to find words of delight, and uprightly he wrote words of truth. (11) The words of the wise are like goads, and like nails firmly fixed are the collected sayings; they are given by one Shepherd. (12) My son, beware of anything beyond these. Of making many books there is no end, and much study is a weariness of the flesh. (13) The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. (14) For God will bring every deed into judgment, with every secret thing, whether good or evil.

    The Old Testament is about the nation of Israel, and the covenant God made with them. It starts in the beginning, shows how the nation of Israel was in bondage and freed, went back into bondage, and was freed, over and over again. They abandoned God and then came back to Him, and this cycle was repeated many times. The Old Testament also gives us the prophets. It testifies of the coming Messiah (Jesus). It tells of prominent people in the ancient world who were used by God.

    It is said that the Old Testament is the new concealed, and the New Testament is the old, revealed. :) Very true!

  • The old testament is about the coming Messiah - Jesus Christ.

    The old testament is the new testament concealed.

    The new testament is the old testament revealed.

    Esther - sorry about that - read your answer after I posted.

    Blessings to you.

    The OT was about many things like the beginning of mankind, the first sin, the first murder commited by Cain, the 10 commandements, the freeing of the slaves, Noah and his ark, pretty much everything leading up to Jesus birth. Remember, that the OT is also inspired by God and helpful for us nowadays.

    The old testament is the history of the Hebrew people and prophecies and such. Why?

    • Commenter avatarLogin to reply the answers

    It is the history of the world from the beginning, the history of the nation of Israel and detailed recordings of the linage of Abraham to Jesus - that's why there are so many "begats"....it proves God always keeps his promises.

    Additionally, it gives us real examples of what happens when we stay faithful and when we disobey God. These writings are a warning to us all about what happens when we reject God

    Its stories about God before he got on his meds. He killed, punished, and tormented ALOT of people, and had even more people killed, punished and tormented in his name. As well as many fictious stories with no historical evidence.

    The God of the old testament is something of a pyschopath.

    It is a good lesson though in how NOT to live your life.
