The Old Testament:
Divinely Crafted to Warn and Instruct those who Live Under the New Covenant
Romans 15:4 For whatever things were written before were written for our learning . . .Back
1 Corinthians 10:5-11 . . . God was not well pleased, for they were overthrown in the wilderness. Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted. Don’t be idolaters, as some of them were. . . . Let us not commit sexual immorality, as some of them committed, and in one day twenty-three thousand fell. . . . Don’t grumble, as some of them also grumbled, and perished by the destroyer. Now all these things happened to them by way of example, and they were written for our admonition, on whom the ends of the ages have come.(Emphasis mine).
1 Corinthians 9:9-10 For it is written in the law of Moses, “You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain.” Is it for the oxen that God cares, or does he say it assuredly for our sake? . . .
