Thanks for your wonderful insights on the interrelatedness of the 3 books of scripture. I have printed your article to refer to again in my future studies.

I also love reading the Old Testament. The symbolism, imagery, and the powerful prophecies touch me every day - especially when I see those prophecies being fulfilled. For example, Isaiah warned against the prevailing trend of today of finding fault with someone for making an innocent comment that can be twisted out of context. "That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of nought." (Isaiah 29:21). Or Isaiah 5:20 - "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!" There are score of examples of this every day. The Old Testament is full of sound doctrinal advice to help us detect and avoid evil and prepare for the Coming of the Savior.

Thank you, Dr. Peterson. I am happy to say that I am a Latter-day Saint that has loved the Old Testament from my high school seminary days, and continue to love it more and more as I continue to study and teach it. You have laid forth points that I never consciously thought of, but truly appreciate now that I have.
