The Old Testament was written for the Church’s learning

Arthur Pink

“whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope” (Romans 15:4).

 

Commenting on this scripture Pink stated:

What comfort can I derive from those sections of God’s Word which these people say “do not belong to me”? What “hope” (i.e. a well-grounded assurance of some future good) could possibly be inspired today in Christians by what pertains to none but Jews? Christ came here, my reader, not to cancel, but

 

“to confirm the promises made unto the fathers: and that the Gentiles might glorify God for His mercy” (Romans 15:8,9)!
