To Deny the Old Testament


The whole Bible is the Word of God...Old Testament, as well as the New. Have you heard someone say that he does not study the Old Testament and that he does not want to hear Bible studies, based in the Old Testament? Now we are going to see how serious… fatal, actually… this error is.

Today, we will simply read three verses spoken by Jesus and then notice a short five-point 
commentary by Albert Barnes.

Joh 5:45  Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father. There is one who accuses you: Moses, on whom you have set your hope.

Joh 5:46  For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote of me.

Joh 5:47  But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe my words?"

Albert Barnes:

If ye believe not his writings - If you do not credit what he has written which you profess to believe, it is not to be expected that you will believe my declarations. And from this we may learn:

1.    That many men who profess to believe the Bible have really no regard for it when it crosses their own views and inclinations.

2.   It is our duty to study the Bible, that we may be established in the belief that Jesus is the Messiah.

3.   The prophecies of the Old Testament are conclusive proofs of the truth of the Christian religion.

4.   He that rejects one part of the Bible, will, for the same reason, reject all.

5.   The Saviour acknowledged the truth of the writings of Moses, built his religion upon them, appealed to them to prove that he was the Messiah, and commanded men to search them. We have the testimony of Jesus, therefore, that the Old Testament is a revelation from God. He that rejects his testimony on This subject must reject his authority altogether; and it is vain for any man to profess to believe in the New Testament, or in the Lord Jesus, without also acknowledging the authority of the Old Testament and of Moses.
