Day #9: Dei Verbum 14-16

Next up in the Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation is Chapter IV on the Old Testament.  Paragraphs 14-16 cover that whole chapter.

This chapter affirms the importance and relevance of the Old Testament, even after its fulfillment in the New.  The books of the Old Testament remain “permanently valuable” (para. 14).  They show us the “true divine pedagogy” (para. 15).  In other words, they give us insight into how God teaches us.  And finally they “shed light on” and “explain” the New Testament (para. 16).

Here are the links to all of the Scripture citations:

Article 14:

Gen. 15:18
