. . . holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. — 2 Peter 1:21
Although one can derive inspiration from any portion of the Scripture, it is better to have an understanding of the general structure of the Bible to get the most out of it. The Old Testament is an account of a nation, Israel. Out of that nation came Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world.
Billy Graham Daily Devotional – The Mind Of Christ
The New Testament is an account of a Man, the Son of man, the Savior. God Himself became a man, so that we might know what He is like. His appearance on the earth was the central, most important event of history. The Old Testament gives the background for this event; the New Testament tells the story of its fulfillment.
You will find a unity of thought and purpose which indicates that one mind inspired the writing of the whole.
