OTS-1 - The Value of the Old Testament
“Whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope” (Rom. 15:4). Welcome to our series of lessons on Old Testament Studies. This series is designed to help us learn valuable lessons from the Old Testament, including people’s lives and God’s teachings that never change regarding His nature and His relationship with man. Ultimately, these lessons are intended to help us live holier lives so that one day we can realize the hope of which Romans 15:4 speaks. Many times people think that the Old Testament is a book that was written to the Jews, and that has nothing to do with us. This is not true. The Old Testament is God’s inspired Word (2 Tim. 3:16). It is valuable for our lives. And, as the New Testament says, it can give us patience and comfort, and ultimately obtain us realize the hope of heaven.
