The New Testament reveals the mystery of who Christ is. The Old Testament conceals the mystery; yet to those who seek God, that mystery is revealed through Prophecy by the Holy Spirit.
The beauty of our Faith is that we do not believe in Myths, Fairy Tales and Legends. Our Faith is grounded in History, Archeology, Science and most of all verifiable Prophecy.
2 Peter 1:21 says “We have a more sure word of Prophecy….. it came not at any time by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.
One of the greatest Sermons given by Jesus is in Luke 24:13 on the Emmaus road. The two disciples were depressed that the Messiah was killed. Jesus said to them “O foolish men and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! Was it not necessary for the Christ to suffer these things and to enter His glory?
“And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures.”
At the time of Christ the scriptures were the Law of Moses, the Prophets, the Psalms and the Proverbs. That is the Bible that Jesus taught from.
Phillip Yancey…in his book “The Jesus I never knew” describes Jobs Outburst at God…
“You don’t know what it’s like out here!” Job was most brazen, flinging to God this accusation: “Do you have eyes of flesh? Do you see as a mortal sees?
Of the many reasons for Incarnation, surely one was to answer Job’s accusation: Do you have eyes of flesh? …For a time, God did.
God is not mute: the Word spoke, not out of a whirlwind, but out of the human larynx of a Jew”.
