Here are eight quick reasons:
- All Scripture is inspired by God (2 Tim. 3:16), not just the ones we like to read.
- 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).
- When Paul preached to the Ephesian church he preached the whole counsel of God (Acts 20:27).
- When Stephen preached in Acts chapter seven he preached the Old Testament.
- Many people do not have knowledge of the Old Testament and they should.
- The things in the Old Testament serve to instruct us and set an example for us (Rom. 15:4; 1 Cor. 10:11).
- When Paul ministered to churches one of his ministries was proving that Jesus was the Promised One, the Christ (Acts 9:22).
- 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.”
