Teachings of the Old Testament

Applying the principles, precepts and doctrines to life

As this year's Old Testament course of study in Sunday Schoolcomes to a close, we might ask ourselves "What have I learned?"

Perhaps the Old Testament may be likened to a "school," wherein we learn doctrines, precepts and principles of the gospel. Certainly, the Apostle Paul told the Galatians that the Law of Moses, which is contained in the Old Testament, was "our schoolmaster to bring us to Christ." (Gal. 3:24-25.)

Following are some highlights of Old Testament teachings:

Jesus Christ is the only Savior, and beside Him there is no other. (Isa. 43:11.)

God is with His children in their adversities and provides a way for them to face, endure or overcome trials. The Lord sent an angel to minister to and protect Shadrach, Mesach and Abed-nego when they were cast into the fiery furnace. (Dan. 3.) Help will be provided those who are given "the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction." (Isa. 30:20.)
