Although there are many who suppose that the New Testament abrogated the Torah, the New Testament explicitly states that it has itself been given as Torah. Obviously, if the New Testament is Torah, then the Torah has not been abrogated. Instead, the New Testament has been given the same status as the Torah of Moses; that is, it has come to have the highest authority there is, the authority that accompanies promulgation by God himself. One might say that Torah has been expanded – or, better, that Torah has been made more explicit.
According to 2 Tim. 3:16-17, “All Scripture is breathed out by God and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”
If that’s true, why does so much of the Old Testament seem antiquated and irrelevant to today’s Christians? John Atkinson and Edith Sher unlock obscure, seemingly obsolete passages and show that the message they contain is as up-to-date as when they were first written. You will learn anew about God’s intimate care for your life.
