Q & A: "Paul, why are you preaching through the Old Testament?"

Posted · 2 Comments


Here are eight quick reasons:

  1. All Scripture is inspired by God (2 Tim. 3:16), not just the ones we like to read.
  2. All the promises of God find their answer in Jesus so it is important that we understand what the promises are (2 Cor. 1:20).
  3. When Paul preached to the Ephesian church he preached the whole counsel of God (Acts 20:27).
  4. When Stephen preached in Acts chapter seven he preached the Old Testament.
  5. Many people do not have knowledge of the Old Testament and they should.
  6. The things in the Old Testament serve to instruct us and set an example for us (Rom. 15:4; 1 Cor. 10:11).
  7. When Paul ministered to churches one of his ministries was proving that Jesus was the Promised One, the Christ (Acts 9:22).
  8. As a leader at Grace Crossing I will have to give an account for how I teach (Heb. 13:17). I feel it is my duty to preach “Uncovering Christ in the Old Testament.”
