Scripture Reading: Acts 3:21, Romans 16:25

le teachers have long operated under the faulty  assumption that the main division of Scripture is "Old  Testament and New Testament." We have frequently heard or  read the statement, "the Old Testament is for the Jews, and  the New Testament is for us." Furthermore, there is a  common but incorrect notion that the Old Testament begins  with Genesis 1:1, and the N ewTestament begins with Matthew  1:1. This misconception comes from the title pages added by  man, not from the pages of Scripture itself.

The fact is, that the "Old Testament" (or the Law) doesn't  begin until Exodus 20:1, when God revealed it to Moses; and  the New Testament doesn't begin until the death of Christ.  (See Matthew 26:28.) Even then, this is the New Testament  (or covenant) made "with the house of Israel and with the  house of Judah" (Jeremiah 31:31).

The true division of Scripture is prophecy and the  mystery. When the apostle Peter spoke to the Israelites of his  day, he offered them the return of Christ and the restitution of  all things, telling them that all this was "spoken by the mouth  of all his holy prophets since the world began." (See Acts 3:19-  21.) On the other hand, the apostle Paul wrote to the Gentiles  about "the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret  since the world began" (Romans 16:25). It is clear that Peter  and Paul were referring to two different messages, for  something cannot be "spoken" and "kept secret" at the same  time. As we "rightly divide the Word of truth" (II Timothy  2:15), we must recognize the mystery revealed to Paul as our  private "mail" for today!
