Rodney, poorly, writes,
This approach, I believe, gives me suffice reason to avoid so called “Christo-centric” readings of the “Old” Testament, where everything is allegory while the history of the Jewish people is superseded.
Oh, look… Rodney get a little Joelitis…
Anyway, his post makes a point, that a purely Christo-centric reading of the Old Testament is a poor one, dismissing the actual Scriptures themselves in favor of what they think the appendix is about. While Christians should follow the example of Matthew, Paul, the author of Hebrews, and John Mark who is the author of Revelation, in their placement of Christ in relation to the Old Testament. It is about the grand narrative, in my opinion, but like any good narrative, sometimes, not every story or passage is completed by the end of the book.
So, I guess my scriptural theology here is to first read the Old Testament as Jewish Scriptures. Then to read them in light of Christ who incarnated them through his life (like Matthew suggests). Anyway… there you go.
