The Old Testament is amazingly relevant to our day and can help you come to know Christ. Thankfully, you don’t have to be a biblical scholar to understand its most profound messages.
In his conversational style, author Brent L. Top shows how the Old Testament, rather than being merely a collection of archaic laws and obscure history, is an exciting, faith-affirming record that witnesses of Christ and speaks of contemporary challenges and concerns.
One major Old Testament theme discussed is that the Lord’s covenant people are his “peculiar treasure.” The Old Testament reveals the Lord’s diligent care for his people, and how the appellation “peculiar treasure” may be bestowed upon the Old Testament itself as well.
Among other messages, the author also discusses the timelessness of the Ten Commandments, the imagery of the bride and the bridegroom, and the modern relevancy of the ancient Nazarite vow.
