Is the bible in its perception and subtitles as old testament(covenant) and new testament(covenant) made us see or believe it as two separate stories?
Why, as Christianity has perceived is that it is a second story for a new people and a better way of worshipping their God?
Where does it explain that it is the second version of the first one?
The whole backstory of the old testament is a plethora of puzzle pieces of God’s desire of our eternal purpose. Most of all references of the N.T. are always pointing back to the O.T. and it’s border of the puzzle that is before us. It is when we decide to look at the border and to look at the puzzle box to see what the next pieces are needed to see God’s whole picture for us.
What is pieced together in the middle of the puzzle, is being framed from the outside of the puzzle, it is this that the old testament and the Jewish story and their God that is the storyline of the whole story.
It is when we have separated the two testaments that the message is filtered down to look like another puzzle from the store. Then there is the second story that is being forced feed the pieces of the puzzle to fit where we want them to fit, not where they are supposed to fit.
The real vision of God is for us to put all the pieces together into just one puzzle with the right pieces to see the real image that he has designed for us!
