John 1: 1-5
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. All things were created through him, and apart from him not one thing was created that has been created. In him was life, and that life was the light of men. That light shines in the darkness, and yet the darkness did not overcome it.
One of the most important things remember, is to never read the Old Testament without first reading the New Testament very closely, and understanding it as completely as possible. Begin every Bible Study, by understanding this very basic Bible interpretation law. “The Old Testament is the New Testament in a concealed format.” The New Testament is the Old Testaments hidden concepts, being revealed to the church. Therefore we must use all of the New Testament revelations to understand anything that was written in the Old Testament. If you fail to do this you will find yourself in error. If you are reading and studying mostly from the Old Testament without using any of the New Testament to explain it, you need to stop and change your study methods quick. We in the church are not under the law of the Old Covenant.
Romans 6:15. What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not!
