The 66 books that make up the Bible are divided into the Old Testament (39) and the New Testament (27). The section of the Bible known as the Old Testament is the focus of our research. This is referred to as a “testament” or “covenant” because it was a firmly established proclamation of God’s specific will for man and it was born of the great testator, “the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world,” who was meant to die (Rev 13:8). The Old Testament serves as the New Testament’s “shade.”
It is referred to as the Old Testament in reference to the New, which brings that higher hope that was represented and predicted in it rather than necessarily cancelling and superseding it. For example, the grace that the ancient covenant portrayed is made complete in the New Testament by Christ.
While Calvary is the focal point of the New Testament, Sinai is the focus of the Old Testament. The New Testament completes what the Old Testament begins. The New aids in interpreting the Ancient.
