Many Christians today fail to appreciate the benefit the Old Testament can bring to their daily walk. The Old Testament is often looked upon as a collection of interesting stories, and Israel is viewed as a forgotten people. Yet many of the New Testament writers base their teaching on an understanding of the Old Law and its people. To fail to study and appreciate the Old Covenant and people of God is to rob one’s self of important insights into the New Covenant and the New Kingdom. One such insight is provided by God in the parallel He establishes between physical Israel and spiritual Israel (the church).
