I love the way Jesus worded Matthew 13:52, He said to them, “Therefore every teacher of the law who has been instructed about the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old.” Jesus is talking about the value of understanding the Old Testament law because it is a real treasure. It points the way to Jesus, the Messiah. Jesus, as our example, always upheld the law’s authority and relevance. But ultimately He came to show us the the way to salvation through His sacrifice. Both the old and the new are important and are not separated. They fulfill the importance of both to the life of a believer and follower of Christ.
