“For whatever things were written before were written for our learning” (Romans 15:4 NKJV). “Our learning” must come from studying the events written in the Bible. God’s plan to save both Jew and Gentile through Jesus Christ, and add the saved to the church of Christ, is in the New Testament, not the Old Testament. Paul wrote that God’s Plan, “in other ages was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to His holy apostles and prophets” (Ephesians 3:5 NKJV). Peter commanded Jews, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins” (Acts 2:38 NKJV); and Gentiles “to be baptized in the name of the Lord” (Acts 10:48 NKJV). Jesus saves “from all things from which you could not be justified by the law of Moses” (Acts 13:39 NKJV).
