Podcast on the Importance of the OT

I recently sat down with Clay Kraby, a pastor in North Dakota, to do a podcast for his very helpful blog, Reasonable Theology. We covered a range of topics related to the importance of the OT for Christians today. It’s one of my favorite things to discuss; in fact, I joke in my Gospels and Pauline Epistles classes that they’re basically OT classes, given how important the OT is to the thinking and theology of the NT writers.

Clay is an RTS student and an all-around sharp guy. Many thanks to him for the opportunity.

  1. “I joke in my Gospels and Pauline Epistles classes that they’re basically OT classes, given how important the OT is to the thinking and theology of the NT writers.” – Yes! Except it’s not a joke. It is tragic that we don’t realize that the early missionaries were bridging God’s earlier revelation to the nations. The covenantal environment was different (which implied significant transformation, e.g. the ending of the sacrificial system), but the substance of God’s Truth was the same.
