(for all faiths) Looking at the STORIES only, do you prefer the OT or the NT?

I've been talking religion with various people, can't you tell? =)

I like the OT more because it's more epic. Sorta like an action/adventure movie.

  • The's the reason why...God spoke to us last by the example left behind by his Son...the OT was to prepare God's ppl for the coming of the NT Christ was revealed, the hope, the love, the forgiveness. Christ came to take away the sin of the world...the OT sacrifices resembled the work and purpose of the life of Christ. Just like the sin of our past is to be left behind with the revelation of is the OT way of life. Christ brough the new way which would be forever and enduring....or else there never would have been a New Testament.

  • Well, in a story sense I think the OT is more exciting. Plagues, incest... it's all in there! In terms of message, I prefer the NT though.
