Key Passage: Acts 13:13-43
Topic: Bible Study
"And we bring you the good news that what God promised to the fathers, this he has fulfilled to us their children by raising Jesus" (Acts 13:32-33, ESV).
The Bible is a big book containing roughly 800,000 words. It's separated into two major divisions; the Old Testament, and the New Testament.
The Old Testament is by far the largest containing about 75% of the Bible's content--and yet it is often ignored by Christians today.
But already in the Book of Acts, we've seen the importance of the Old Testament.
Before Stephen was executed (Acts 7), he retold the Old Testament story, going all the way back to Abraham. Now in this chapter, Paul, in Antioch of Pisidia, does the same thing starting with the Israelites' exodus out of Egypt.
Why is the Old Testament important? Because it all points to Jesus. On the road to Emmaus, just after His resurrection, Jesus explained to the travelers walking with Him how all of the Old Testament pointed to Him (see Luke 24:27).
Don't fall into the trap of thinking only the New Testament is important because of its stories of Jesus and letters on Christian living.
The whole Bible is about Jesus and about what He did for sinners on the cross.
