In our study of the Bible, we may bypass the Old Testament to focus on the more familiar New Testament. But the history, themes and prophecies of the Old Testament are key to our understanding of God’s Word as a whole.
Develop your understanding of the Old Testament by considering ten key aspects, such as:
- Who wrote the Old Testament, and why it is still relevant today
- The importance of the history, law and the prophets
- The relevance of the Exodus and Babylonian Exile
- How the Old Testament points to Jesus
