-old covenant: A covenant is an agreement:.Deuteronomy 29:1,9; 30:19. The old covenant in the Bible was the agreement involving various rules and regulations of the Mosaic Law, that God made with a physical nation.(ancient Israel {of which the tribe of Judah [Jews] was but one of 12 tribes}).for physical blessings.(if they kept what they agreed to:.Deuteronomy 28:1-14; Exodus 24:3) and curses.(if they failed to keep it:.Deuteronomy 28:15-68), involving the people's works in keeping all God had laid down for them to follow; summed up in:.Deuteronomy 29:1,2,9 and 5:29. The people just couldn't keep the agreement with the ordinary human natures they had and who could blame them. The agreement was:.Malachi 2:10.

The people became fed up with God and wanted a king to rule them like all the nations around them. They just lacked the heart toward God.

This covenant had a fault too and by it the people were also faulty:.Hebrews 8:7,8,13; 10:1. It was not designed to be successful! It was designed to show how that with only the ordinary consciousness, the people wanted all the Creator promised to them, but they lacked the higher consciousness that would allow them to reach to it and possess it. It was designed to show something greater was needed. The people back then soon tired of the odious.600 plus regulations they had obligated themselves by agreement to follow.

Never mind the regular people; this old covenant could not even make the priests perfect, the priests God chose! It was that bad:.Hebrews 9:9

The Creator of course, foresaw all this and it was the way it was supposed to be as part of the overall plan of the Creator for mankind:.Romans 9:11. It was all to point to Christ, for He was the New Covenant, as the 'be all, end all' for all time:.John 19:30; Romans 11:36; Colossians 1:17. More.


-Old Testament: The section of the Bible before the birth of Emmanuel, which is called the B.C.E. part of history, as compared to the New Testament, called the A.D. part of history.

The Old Testament casts its allegorical shadow toward the New Testament. The Old Testament has to do with the normal low consciousness of mankind, whereas the New Testament is for depth of spirituality.

The Old Testament books contain among other things, the Mosaic Law which if not kept perfectly, made one a sinner, but there were provisions.in the Mosaic Law for forgiveness.

How so was the Old Testament valuable for us today?.Romans 15:4 "For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope." 2Peter 2:6 "...the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha ..., making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly." 

The Old Testament supports the entire Bible. Why the Old Testament law?

Contrast the New Testament, where the opposite is true; keeping the Old Testament law made one a sinner as one would 'miss the mark'.(the original word meaning for 'sin').of Christ's righteousness. In this era of the New Testament and if on the side of keeping the commands of the Old Testament, that were all done away in Christ, one would be bringing a burden upon himself, one's joy of living would be hampered and his or her life would be as if it was cursed.

This was because what a person does, he or she becomes:.Leviticus 18:5, "...keep my statutes and my judgments, which if a man do, he lives in them..."

The entire Old Testament occurred and was recorded so mankind could learn.(Romans 15:4).something. Learn what?

The chronology of the Old Testament is interesting to have a look at.

From The Free Bible: The Old Testament was written over a period of 1,400 years by about 32 writers, covering over 3,600 years of man's history. It was penned by men of vastly different backgrounds, living in different countries and in different ages. Many did not know each other and some did not even know what the others had written. Yet when their writings became one book, each perfectly harmonized with the others, an indication that this Book of many writers has only One Author, the Holy Ghost:.2Peter 1:21.

And the Bible comes with a hidden code to tie all these separate writings together. Amazing!

Four hundred years separate the writing of the last book of the Old Testament and the beginning of the New Testament.

The first five books of the.Bible.are called the Law.(they are also known as the Torah or Pentateuch). Written by Moses in the wilderness, these books receive their name because they record the Law God gave to Israel on mount Sinai. This was the now done away.(Hebrews 10:9).Mosaic Law, also called the 'law of Moses', the 'book of Moses' and the 'book of the law', all meaning the instructions back then God had communicated to the man Moses.

Othniel:.name means 'lion of God', the one of the first of the judges. His wife Achsah was the daughter of Caleb.(see Joshua 15:16,17; Judges 1:13). He gained her hand as a reward for his bravery in leading a successful expedition against Debir.(q.v.)

Some thirty years after the death of Joshua, the Israelites fell under the subjection of Chushanrishathaim, the king of Mesopotamia. He oppressed them for a full eight years, when they "cried" unto God and Othniel was raised up to be their deliverer. He was the younger brother of Caleb. He is the only judge mentioned connected with the tribe of Judah, Judah was yet to split into its own nation until circa B.C.E. 1020.

Under Othniel the land had rest forty years.

Judges ruled Israel before Israel's division into two kingdoms, that then named Israel and Judah.
