Subject I gotta admit, if the OT stands alone, apart from the NT, it depicts a hellish world of barbarity and darkness ruled by a Demiurge-like entity

Original Message Sometimes I have trouble harmonizing the OT God with the Jesus of the NT.

What would you think of the OT if the NT didn't exist? What would be your assessment of the God it depicts?

The OT is filled with war and barbarity and senseless cruelty. From Man and God alike. A nightmare world. I find very little mercy and compassion in the OT God.

If the OT foreshadows Jesus and the coming of a Messiah..what verses do this..besides Isaiah ch. 53?

I'm just confused today. My faith is being tried.
