The New Testament authors were steeped in Old Testament imagery, prophecies, and writing styles.

The Hebrew Bible ends still waiting for the promised Messiah, and we see that story continued in the New Testament. When we look at the overall structure of the New Testament, we can see how the entire Bible tells one epic story—from Genesis to Revelation—that points to Jesus.

It's Not a New Story

The New Testament is not as disconnected from the Old Testament as some might assume. The authors of the New Testament were well-versed in the Hebrew Scriptures, constantly referencing Old Testament passages and stories. Jesus and the apostles saw Jesus' story as the continuation of the Hebrew Bible.
