He not only has a prophesied plan for all people, but he is also concerned about each one of us and our eternal potential. He reveals the scriptures to help us catch the vision of his plan and also to give us a personal purpose within that plan. The covenant theme permeates Old Testament teachings and is a primary purpose of their existence.
From the beginning, the Lord established a covenant relationship with his chosen people. See Ex. See Moses —52 ; Gen.
Unlocking the Bible: New Testament Vol 1
In the scriptures, although covenant-making is serious, it is not something harsh like adversaries binding and obligating themselves in a compact , but something gentle like two friends, especially a father with his children, sitting and eating bread together. Teaching about covenants is a primary purpose of all scripture. This is spoken of as the Old Covenant, from which we get the name Old Testament for the first part of our Bible. See Matt. In one of the most touching passages of Jeremiah, the Lord announces that in the future he will make a new covenant with Israel, the old Mosaic covenant having been broken.
Key number 5: Ancient prophets often wrote in symbolic poetry. Because of the oral nature of the teaching-learning process common in ancient Semitic societies, Hebrew prophets helped their listeners by organizing their pronouncements into various poetic patterns. For example, ideas and words or phrases were often expressed in couplets that were parallel with each other.
The prophets also used symbolism to reinforce mental images while allowing the full meaning of the pronouncements to remain veiled and hidden from those not ready or willing to understand them. Key number 6: Prophecy is understood by the gift and spirit of prophecy.

See Rev. The gift of prophecy gives us the witness through the Spirit that Jesus is the Christ, thereby fulfilling the second major purpose of scripture, according to Moroni:. Key number 7: Prophecies are meant to edify. Scriptural prophecies edify, enlighten, encourage, and endow us. They enlighten us by revealed truths. They encourage us by giving us hope and promise of divine aid. They endow us with power from on high to meet the challenges of mortality.
See Book of Mormon Title Page. It is more difficult to recognize these tender attributes of God in the historical and prophetic portions of the Old Testament than in the Psalms and other poetic parts of the Old Testament. These steps of reading, remembering, pondering, and praying are the ones outlined by Moroni as keys to gaining enlightenment and understanding from the Book of Mormon. The same pattern provides affirmation and edification from any scripture passage.
As prophets have followed these steps, they have received new insights and revelation. See JS—H — Joseph F. Smith provides a big picture view of Scripture. This volume packs the main themes and concepts of the Bible onto its pages, providing the reader with rich encouragement and life-changing truths.
