Have you ever been in love? When you received your first love letter did you ever ask someone if you should read it halfway?Is the new testament enough or should a christian know the whole Bible?
Very true! Jesus says we LIVE by EVERY WORD from God's mouth (Mt.4:4).Have you ever been in love? When you received your first love letter did you ever ask someone if you should read it halfway?
The whole bible is God's word to us. We should want to know it all.
True! Jesus requires ALL Torah (Mt.5:19).The new testament is nothing but letters from the disciples.
The old testament is what you need to know.
It contains all of God's laws.
Remember: there was no new testament at the time of jesus or paul, just the Hebrew scriptures, which they taught from!
" the covenant you are now in"Brother Frank,I would recommend getting a real good foundation upon the covenant you are now in,before looking at why there was a need for a new covenant to begin with.( Gal 5:4) When Jesus brought forth a NEW commandment( John 13:34-35) this covers all the rest of any law to those!!!! Who believe!!!!( Rom 10:4)
I once lived in California,and moved to Michigan,would I look to follow in California laws in Michigan??? Or rather deal with what I have at present? Same here bro. Salvation is won by believing in the one who gave us this! It was not the law.( Rom 3:20) For the law was brought forth to increase sin!!!!( Rom 5:20) In Christ Jesus there is ( Rom 15:13). The law could not deliver this precious deliverance!( Heb 8:6-13!!)
