As I was coming to faith in Christ many years ago; I didn't believe in the reliability of the Hebrew Scriptures ( which Christians call the " Old Testament '" ), and I certainly didn't believe in the reliability of the New. Raised in the Hebrew parochial school system, there was a day when our teacher explained that the stories in the Bible were allegorical and shouldn't be taken literally. For 9 and 10 year-olds taught to believe in the parting of the Red Sea and Adam and Eve, that came as quite a surprise. The sea didn't part ( we were told). They just knew where to walk when the tide was low. The plagues upon Egypt were naturally-occuring phenomena that Moses claimed were sent from God to punish the enemies of the Jew, much like the early Spanish missionaries with Columbus threatened the Indians with destruction of the sun because they knew of a coming eclipse. So I stopped believing in the integrity or reliability of the Old Testament, and I simply took for granted that the New Testament with its fanciful notions of resurrection and virgin birth was part of the same myth; the whole Christian "hysteria " of Jesus and the myth of the gospel.......until one day, when I saw with amazement the prophesies of Christ, and the truth of the gospels, not from the New testament, but from the Old; from the Hebrew Scriptures themselves.
