3D old testament


20150620_162651I have used this analogy before to  show the subtlety of the old testament’s message, but I will use it again.

Have you seen the picture’s that if you look at them right at first you cannot see anything of value in the picture, this is the way we look at the  old testament now, it is only for face value. The stories of the old testament are interesting and morally relevent but there is more to them than  that at the first glance.

As with the picture on the wall that you cannot see anything without looking deep into the whole picture that you see a story that God has woven for us to see with an amazing message.

What is truly amazing with the old testament is that once you see the whole story that is being shown to us, you will now just be able to see it instead of the ‘face value’ aspect of the old testament. You will even start to see the  pieces  all fit together of all the things you have read or going to read in the OT.

Story lines in the newspapers are a ‘standard’ in the industry. So it is, in the bible. The old testament is the foundation of God’s message to us, until we ‘SEE” it, the ‘new’ will not make sense to us.
