apparent right away is the amount of time covered in the Old Testament is huge compared to the amount of time covered in the New Testament. As we entered our time of studying the New Testament after not really looking at it much over the
past two years I think there was a feeling of general relief, of coming home, of getting back to the familiar. But as we progress our newly studied Old Testament knowledge should provide more depth to our New Testament studies.
As we mentally make the transition from being an Israelite to being a Christian we, hopefully have a little better idea of what the first Christians had to go through. Paul, for example, going from being an extreme Jew and having his whole life changed to become a follower of Christ.
This year we get to have Christmas with the Gospels, last year we adjusted the schedule a little to have Christmas with Isaiah, the year before was Christmas with Exodus, a bit of a challenge. But God continued to bless His people.
Can you state a way in which our Old Testament study brought a new light to a the New Testament idea or thought?
