Is the Old Testament still relevant? If so, how?

Hello! I actually never thought of this before so thank you for asking. I wonder if this has anything to do with why some bibles only include the New Testament but not the Old Testament.

A lot of Old Testament stories help us understand the New Testament, and even provides proof and a basis of prophecy in which we can believe in Jesus' first coming. But this is a good question, I've always wondered about the relevance of the Old Testament books specifically the laws and the genealogies.

Yes! I need to know the answer. Because I have heard that Jesus fulfills the law (so we don't need it apparently)

For sure there is a purpose, but in addition to the question, I would really like to know why books like Obadiah and Haggai are there? I just find the Old Testament to be a really hard read

A lot of people don’t like the Old Testament but I think God gave us 66 books of the Bible for a reason.

I think it must be relevant and important for believers. That's why it includes in the Bible. At the same time, I agree it's hard to understand. Maybe that's why people tend to not read the OT.

I think it is because God still recorded it 🤔

@skyblue I think because OT can be dense and easy way out is to focus on the more direct readings

Definitely there is a history of the past that gives reason as to why Jesus needed to come (sin)

@seekingclarity I can relate! Anyone has any guidelines on how one can read the old testament?
