The New Testament Writers' Guide

How the New Testament Authors Relied on the Hebrew Scriptures


This issue of Israel My Glory takes a look into the minds of the New Testament’s most prevalent authors, examining how they used the sacred words of the original Hebrew Scriptures to craft their own entries into the whole counsel of God’s Word as they were moved by the Holy Spirit (2 Pet. 1:21). You might be surprised by how much the Old Testament foreshadows and fills in our understanding of the New Testament.
IMG In Depth: Our radio host, Chris Katulka, interviews Meno Kalisher about his article, "3 Proofs and a Mystery."
