The simple and short answer to the title question is: We study the Old Testament because we cannot understand the New Testament without it. In fact, we will make a lot of mistakes in understanding the New Testament and particularly the central figure of Jesus without understanding the culture, religion, and milieu of the people of Israel through his time and beyond.
Over the last forty-five years, we have seen the rise of a virulent conservative Christianity that commands headlines to the point where anything other than this position hardly qualifies for consideration. It has become magnetic north for the media, the go-to point for Christian opinion. Yet there is a lot of “other than this,” despite the ongoing downhill slide of mainstream Christianity.
