I had the impression that the New Testament was exactly that. A new set of rules that replaced the old set in entirety. If this indeed so; then why does the bible, still contain the Old Testament? Surely, as we have been given the second testament via Jesus then, for a Christian, the Old Testament should be meaningless.

One for Bible study I would guess

Some Bibles are only the NT
Hello, ohnhai! :) I have seen many a Bible that only contains the New Testament.
  • Do you want to assert that the Old Testament is no longer a valid piece of religious literature?
  • How would you present your Bible Study? Bible Study is a forum for Christian and/or Jewish Believers who view the Bible as a philosophical/Theological faith based discussion.

    Accuracy/Innerrency may be a better fit for this, but Faith/Belief would be even better yet. Do get back to me and elaborate on the direction that you wish to go with this topic. Respond By March 7th

    Re: Paging Ohnhai
    AdminPhat, I haven't been active enough on this board to want to promote this topic on my own authority.

    However, I most definitely want to address this question, and I think the question is clear. If the New Covenant superceded the old, then why keep the old? It seems like a legitimate question, and I'd love to give my answer.
