Romans 1:2 Preaching Rooted to the Old Testament
Romans 1:2 (KJV) (Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,)
The apostle insisted, and will spend a great deal of this book proving, that the gospel was no new thing but promised in the Old Testament.
There is too much disparaging of the Old Testament in today’s Christianity. There is:
Too little preaching of it
Too little application of it
Too little instruction concerning its place in New Testament faith
The foundational truths of the gospel are rooted in the Old Testament. Therefore a proper understanding of the gospel is not possible without an understanding of the Old Testament.
Paul, preaching to a Gentile church, began by assuring his audience his message was rooted to the Old Testament. We must do no less.
