Congrats Wilhelmina Jenkins 😎
Without the Old Testament how would we know our past history. It is like tracing your genealogy using only your last name you are only getting part of the picture. It takes both parts to complete the Bible. I have traced my ancestors back to 600, but I can look at the Bible and see my roots go to Japheth son of Noah. If I was well versed in the Bible I couldn’t know that, I don’t need a $100 DNA test to prove my roots, when I have paper proof of the names of my ancestors, that is far more valuable to me than the $100 test. As the Scriptures say You have searched me and known me. I know Jesus because I have searched Him and known him. He is my Lord and Savior.
You are right, it takes both the Old Testament and the New Testament to complete the Bible. However, some Christian tend to forget this truth.
It is almost impossible to know for sure whether your roots go back to Japheth, the son of Noah. The genealogies in Genesis 10 has more to do with the politics of the ancient world than with the genealogical information about individuals.
Thank you so much!
You are welcome. I hope you enjoy reading the book.
Professor Mariottoni, I’m in the process of writing a book on foods, herbs, spices in the bible. Do you have any input as it relates to the Old Testament that you can send me. Of course, you will get credit for it in my book.
Nice hearing from you. Congratulations on this book project. I am sending you an email with some helpful information.
