>Don’t Neglect Genesis – Malachi!

>I try often to refer to the “old testament” as the “First Testament.” Why? Because the word “old” implies, even unconsciously, that it is passe, dated, ah, “old.”

J. C. Ryle amplifies the importance of the first “testament” of the Word:

“Let it be a rule with us, in the reading of our Bibles, to study the types and ordinances of the Mosaic law with prayerful attention. They are all full of Christ. The altar–the scape-goat–the daily burnt-offering–the day of atonement, are all so many sign-posts pointing to the great sacrifice offered by our Lord on Calvary. Those who neglect to study the Jewish ordinances, as dark, dull, and uninteresting parts of the Bible, only show their own ignorance, and miss great advantages. Those who examine them with Christ as the key to their meaning, will find them full of Gospel light and comfortable truth.”
