Many Bible readers have difficulty understanding the Old Testament’s connection to the New Testament, and some even believe it’s obsolete in light of God’s new covenant. In reality, New Testament writers alluded to earlier books of the Bible roughly 300–400 times. The Old Testament isn’t outdated; it’s critical to understanding the rest of Scripture.

He also explains what the Old Testament teaches Christians today about the church’s identity and ethics.
