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.
It doesn’t matter if you are religious or not. It doesn’t matter if you are an atheist, an agnostic, or a believer. Jesus of Nazareth interests people regardless of background or philosophical perspective. Anyone who could stimulate so much emotion and influence to have the turn of the millennia marked by his birth is fascinating to explore.
