The Old Testament spoke of what we have today

Romans Bible Background

08.02.2017 – New Testament: Rom 3.21

To read the Bible in a year, read Romans 3 on August 2, In the year of our Lord 2017

By Don Ruhl

Paul had just written that the Law of Moses had condemned the whole world, making everyone guilty before God, for the Law gave us the knowledge of sin, but the Law could not justify us. Then Paul wrote,

But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets… (Romans 3.21). 

The world needed the Law as God showed the world with the example of the Jews that sin exists, and that it leads to condemnation. However, that same Law and the Prophets who came later, spoke of a righteousness of God that would come after the Law. God would bring something new into the world. We now live in that new thing.

Questions:

  • Do you believe that we need to know the Old Testament to understand the New Testament?
  • Do you have the righteousness of God?
