Old Testament vis New

 [Jesus] “These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you,

that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the

Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me.”


Often people make judgments about the Bible without ever picking it up and reading it. These judgments are passed on to others and believed. It is man, and not the Bible, that needs correcting. We must discover the Bible for ourselves. Blood has been shed for the freedom to have the Word of God in our hands. Yet it is said that most Bibles remain unopened and unread.

There is a great deal of inaccurate teaching about the Bible, portraying a different God in the Old and New Testaments. Too many people talk about the God of wrath in the Old Testament, and a God of love and peace in the New Testament. But God is the same throughout the Bible.

The Old Testament tells us the God is holy and pure, and He punishes those who rebel against Him. But the New Testament tells us the same thing. In fact, some of the strongest warnings about judgment in the Bible come from the lips of Jesus in the New Testament (Matthew 7:14).

In the same way, the New Testament certainly stresses God’s love and mercy. In fact, it gives us the greatest proof that God loves us: He sent His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, to die in our place, and by His grace we can receive His salvation (Romans 3:23, John 3:16).

But the Old Testament also tells us repeatedly about God’s love for us: “I have loved you with an everlasting love … with loving kindness I have drawn you (Jeremiah 31:3).

The Bible is one book, composed of two testaments; Old or New Testament, both point to Jesus Christ.
