So far we have surveyed the pattern of God dealing with Israel in general terms from the Old Testament. Now, we want to look at that pattern from the New Testament perspective. When we come to the New Testament, we have to agree with Augustine’s statement that “The New Testament lies concealed in the Old, the Old lies revealed in the New.” When we look at the Bible in its entirety we can comprehend Augustine’s saying since the New Testament clearly reveals the Old Testament and helps us to see its fulfillment, but also its fullness. And the Old could not stand by itself, despite the fact that Jewish people think so. There is too much in the Old Testament that is not clear because it is not fully revealed. In the Old we see things in shadow, but in the New we see the substance of who is the Christ. And of course the Old is concealed in the New, because the Old Testament can enhance our understanding and clarify it, since it is the foundation. In fact, there is no truth in the New Testament that does not have its root in the Old.
