New Testament preachers used the Old Testament

Acts Bible Background

New Testament: Acts 1.20

To read the Bible in a year, read Acts 1 on June 15, In the year of our Lord 2020

By Don Ruhl

Read any preacher in the New Testament and you will discover that they used the Old Testament in their messages, and they used it for some of the things done in the church, or in preparation for the church, such as when the apostles needed to replace Judas, and Peter said:

“For it is written in the Book of Psalms:

‘Let his dwelling place be desolate,
And let no one live in it’;


‘Let another take his office.’”

– Acts 1.20

The Old Testament in this case addressed how part of the church would be set up. Unfortunately many Christians want nothing to do with the Old Testament, and they are hurting their own spirituality, knowledge, and wisdom by doing so.
