The Bible is a book of books, comprising 66 books with two main divisions – The Old Testament (39) and the New Testament (27). Our area of study is that part of the Bible which we call the Old Testament. This is called a “testament” or “covenant” because it was a settled declaration of the will of God concerning man in a special way and it is from the designed death of the great testator, “the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world” (Rev 13:8). The Old Testament is a shadow of the New Testament. It is called the Old Testament in relation to the New, which does not necessarily cancel and supersede it but crowns and perfects it, by the bringing of that better hope which was typified and foretold in it. For instance the grace reflected in the old covenant is perfected in the New Testament through Christ.
