The “Old Testament”

ListenListen to Today’s Audio Goodie


The use of the term “Old Testament” as a reference to the books of the Hebrew Scriptures is actually a misnomer. The term “old testament” is a reference to an earlier (Mosaic) covenant that God has made with Israel which was made “old” because it was displaced by a “new covenant” also made with them. “In that He said, ‘A new covenant,’ He has made the first old” (Hebrews 8:13).
