Can you follow Jesus without the Old Testament? Oh, you can play a game of Hide-N-Seek by pretending there is only the New Testament, but the Gospels will challenge you in the very first verses by immediate reference to the Old Testament. When Jesus opens his very mouth and speaks, He purposely binds His words to the Old Testament. The New Testament never lets the reader forget that there is an Old Testament. The Old Testament will not be hidden, for the seekers will always find it. H/T: The Salt Lake Tribune Candler School of Theology – Emory University #Bible#Christianity

  • Is the Old Testament dying? Maybe, but less so for African-Americans and Mormons
