Greetings.
The First Testament is more brutal and has less problem with killing.
The Second Testament is more peace and loving.

To be short about it.
Love to reason further about.

I see very little difference between the message in the old and new testament. The old testament spanned over a very long time, so of course there would be more killing an brutality.

The same love was there all the time. Although many people dealt with less love over time. Just as they continued during the days of Christ and afterwards.

Christ just reminded people about the way they are supposed to Live, and reminded people that to defeat sin they should remove it from their thoughts.

the I thanks I for your insight the reason i was wondering was beccause i was talkin to this girl about how the Ible says thou should not bring a blade upon his face or head and she was saying that in her religion that they only study the new testament because it was after Christ and that the old testament was over looked after the new testament was written any reasoning would be apreciated





Thanks and Iaises to the most high

if anyone tells you to seperate the New from the Old testament tell them to read what Iyasus said in Matthew ch5.v17

Did not Christ Himself say, "I come to fulfill the law, not do away with it"?

Its really not uncommon for ones of Christian influence to pick up and run with the NT, and drop the OT.

An important thing to remember whn reading any book is that there is no such thing as bad information. And there is also much wisdom and inspiration to be found in both Testaments. Study them wisely.

Hotep!

To turn to another subject, Your Imperial Majesty, are there any passages of the bible that have become especially meaningful to you?

H.I.M.: I have the highest respect for the Bible as a whole. We also recognise the rightful name the Bible bears. We find that in all the periods of the Old Testament, in the time of Patriarchs, Kings, and Prophets, great miracles were done. On the other hand, the time in which Our Lord HIM-self gave the command to go to all the world and to preach is also of high value. Then, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John,- the four gospels in which the sayings of our Lord are recorded- are pillars for all men on the earth. THEREFORE THE BIBLE SHOULD NOT BE CUT INTO PORTIONS.
