The old thing

The new thing was contained and hidden in the old thing. The new teaching is a new view of the Old Testament as seen through the eyes of those whose eyes had been opened. [1]

Jesus was the first one whose eyes were opened to the scriptures and he did what he did in obedience to what he saw in the Old Testament. [2] [3]

If you wish to understand scriptures, you must search. [4]

And you must be aided by the Holy Spirit. [5]
