In a general sense, the Old Testament (also called the Hebrew scriptures) is the story of humanity and theirrelationship with God. It begins in the beginning , when God turnedhis attention to the earth and began to create something special onit. When man rebels and sins, then God makes a promise (Genesis 3:15) to put in place a means by which humanity can beredeemed from the first sin that Adam committed (that condemnedmankind sin and death). He promises a "seed" that will take awaythe sins of the world. As this promise unfolds, God makes covenants with various people along the way that his descendants would bepart of this promised "seed". These individuals included Abraham, Jacob and David . The follow-up of the family lineage was very important for the"seed" could be traced back to these individuals. This promise also includes the formation of the nation of Israel(through Jacob) and the establishment of the Mosaic Law. (Genesis -Deuteronomy). But the Law had an end point - the arrival of the promisedseed. Jesus was the Messiah "fulfilled" the purpose of the Law - theopportunity for the redemption. (Romans 10:4) So, then we have the NewTestament (also called the Greek Scriptures). The New Testament covers the life of Jesus, the Christ , the growth of the early Christian congregation and ends with the prophecy of the last days ofhumankind under the sin of Adam and how Jesus Christ, then take steps to reverse the effects of humanity sinand comply with their assignment. See related links for interesting articles on what is in the Bible. Note: Some believe that when Jesus instituted a "newcovenant" with his Apostles, that this was the reason for the use of "Old Testament" and "New Testament" (Luke 22:19, 20) 19â€Also, he took a loaf of bread, gavethanks, and broke it, and gave to them, saying: "This means my bodywhich is to be given in HIS name. Keep doing this in remembranceof me." 20â€Also, the cup the same way after they had the eveningmeal, he saying: "This cup means the new covenant by virtue of myblood, which is shed in ITS name. Appointments: (Genesis 3:15) And I will put enmity between you and the woman and between your seed and her seed. He bruiseyou in the head, and thou shalt bruise his heel." (Romans 10:4) 4â€because Christ is the end of the Law,so that everyone exercising faith may have righteousness. Another answer: Jesus tells us that the "Old Testament" PROPHESIED of Him : "...When I was with you before, I said that EVERYTHING WRITTEN ABOUT ME by Moses and the prophetsand the Psalms SHOULD be ALL this ." (Luke 24:44 NLT New Living Translation) And in the "New Testament" we see the FULFILMENT of the Age Testamentprophecies beginning to take place... culminating with the eventualreturn of Christ to the earth for the final stages of fulfillingall of the prophecies on the "Great Day" of God's plan...the Day of Judgment. The New Testament also brings to light the" Spiritual " aspect of the Old Testamentlaws. "You have heard that the law of Moses [ the Old Testament ]says, 'thou shalt not kill . If you commitmurder, you are subject to Judgment. But I say , IF you are ANGRY WITH SOMEONE [Jesús'illuminating New Testament of the application of the SPIRITUALSTAGE IN THE HEART of the ONE BEFORE that the Old Testament physical manifestation ofmurder], you are subject to Judgment..." (Matt.5:21-22 NIV ). A case of the "duality" that exists in all theBible. The "Old and the New Testament" are an example of this.The Bible speaks of two deaths... two births,... tworesurrections... the two sexes, male and female God created... theDUALITY OF GOD: ["...I AND THE FATHER are ONE." - John 10:30 NIV ], etc, And is not the" material "and" spiritual " aspects of the creation that scontrasted between the two testaments. "...For just as there are natural bodies,so also there are spiritual bodies...What came first was the natural body, then the spiritual body comeslater. Adam, the first man [OldTestament], was made from the dust of the earth, while the Christ [NewTestament], the Second Man, came fromheaven. Every human being has an earthly body as Adam, butour celestial bodies will be the same as Christ. As we are nowlike Adam, the man of the earth, for what will someday be like Christ the Man from heaven." (I Cor.15:44-49 NIV ) The New Testament brings the spiritual aspects of God materialcreation [Old Testament] in a full circle... and FULL of Dios'sTestimony. "Bind up the testimony, SEAL the [ complete ] the law among My disciples." (Isa.8:16 KJV )
