What did Paul, Peter and John preach? Was it the Old Testament Law? Certainly, they did base their preaching on the prophecies of the Old Testament regarding Christ and His gospel. Yet that was not what their preaching encompassed. They preached that which Jesus began to preach and that was the gospel of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, as disclosed in the New Testament.

It was hidden in the Old Testament. It was not disclosed in the Old Testament. The Old Testament after Christ came and began to preach, only then became clear as to its intent. The intent was always for there to come Christ with His gospel. That would include the great mass of believers being Gentiles . This was the great mystery that had been hidden but would be apparent after Paul was sent on his mission from Jesus. He was the Apostle to the Gentiles.

The Gentiles were always the main focus of the Promise given to Abraham. Paul disclosed in 2 Corinthians 3 the blindness that was over that Old Testament Chosen People of God. Only if an individual Hebrew had his eyes opened by the Spirit would anyone from that nation become believers in Jesus Christ. Eyes were opened only when one ‘turned to the Lord (Jesus). Then only would a Hebrew’s eyes be opened. That situation existed only the end, which was in A.D.70. Paul wrote about it in Corinthians A.D. 52 or so. It was about them then. #BibleStudy #Jews #Christian #IreneBonneyFaulkes #Truth #Teaching #wordofgod
