Two Doves

Two turtle doves may refer the Old and New Testaments, the two sections of the Bible. I was recently challenged about the relevance of the Old Testament and its relevance to Christians. The old Hebrew scriptures anticipated and proclaimed the coming of the Messiah; the New declares His arrival and their fulfilment. Both testaments have the same essential message: only Christ saves. Augustine of Hippo said “The New Testament is in the Old concealed; the Old is by the New revealed.”
