What I think is also behind the need to see the OT as
nailed to the cross is that if you open yourself up to
what is in the OT then things like instrumental
music get put on the table and you have to figure out
what to do with that.
THERE IS NO INSTRUMENTAL
MUSIC IN THE LAW OF MOSES. While Kings,
Chronicles etal were written during the time of the Law they
were not part of the Written Ordinances which were added
because of transgression.
Chronicles details the
sacrificial system including Civil-Military-Clergy written
by the Scribes whom Jesus brands as hypocrites and the
prophets brand as liars about the Temple which God did not

Matt Dabbs: When the denominational world uses things
like the Psalms to justify instrumental music in
debate it is much easier to find a verse that just
knocks out the whole OT than to do the heavy lifting
of what you actually do with the psalms and why things are
different in the New Testament.
Paul commanded that we SPEAK Psalms, hymns and
spiritual songs FOR OUR LEARNING. The Word or Logos is the
REGULATIVE PRINCIPLE: It outlaws personal opinions, personal
experiences, rhetoric, singing, playing instruments or
acting. In fact SPEAK is the opposite of SING and that is
why if you are interested in learning the Ode and Psallo are
in the heart meaning silent.
The Psalms were "collected"
during the period after God "gave them kings in His anger"
after their period of Grace was violated and God sent them
away into Babylon as the end-time church is abandoned to
"Babylonianism" using "lusted after fruits" as speakers,
singers or instrument players. John calls them Sorcerers
who HAD once deceived the whole world. They will be CAST
ALIVE INTO THE LAKE of Fire. The Spirit OF Christ in

Psalmos also appears in
the LXX as equivalent to the Hebrew
word neginah. This Hebrew term is used to describe
a wide variety of
songs. Neginah is translated by psalmos in Lam
(song), in Lam 5:14
(music) and in Ps 69:12 (song). It is striking to observe
that in the
LXX translation of Lam 3:14 and Ps 69:12, psalmos, or its
is used for songs that are not only uninspired
but are in fact the product of the wicked, even
drunkards, who mocked God and His word. The
Hebrew term neginah is used elsewhere in the Hebrew
Scriptures of: the
songs of the wicked, Job 30:9 (song); the inspired praise
of God, Psalm

instrument); and the
uninspired praise of the Lord composed by King Hezekiah,

Matt Dabbs: Obviously not
everything in the OT would still apply even if we nailed to
the cross the idea that the OT was nailed to the cross
(sacrifices as one example) but the shortcut is to just
ditch the whole thing, win the debate, and move on. I am
convinced that some of the stranger views that Churches
of Christ have traditionally held over the years (like
the Old Testament being nailed to the cross) developed
out of debate winning more than good exegesis that
then got repeated enough times to solidify into tradition.

Matt Dabb: How is our
message conflicting? The problem is in our practice we
haven’t ditched the whole thing and moved on. In fact
while saying in one breath that the OT was nailed to the
cross we say in the next breath that it is needed to prove
various doctrinal points. So we go to places like Genesis
6:14 and God’s instruction to use “gopher wood” or Nadab
and Abihu for rules on specificity of worship while also
saying the OT is irrelevant. Oddly enough both of these
examples are used to instruct worship practice while at
the same time saying other verses in the OT shouldn’t do
that very thing!
Genesis is included in the BOUND

By definition a Christian is a
Disciple, is a student and he LISTENS to
LEARN. Why would anyone want to do a
legalistic end run around simply obeying God's

not have to use gopher wood to "speak that which is

Levitical singer or musican could EVER enter into the
presence of the incense altar between the Holy Place and
Most Holy Place, in Hezekiah's reform (Peck preference)
EVEN to clean out the garbage left over from pagan
"civilians" could never come near the tabernacle or
temple without incurring the death penalty.
The Levites could never enter into the Holy Place
which typified the church.
No Israelite people ever engaged in "congregational
singing with instrumental accompaniment."
This was all part of the CURSE of the sacrificial
system which God quarantined to Jerusalem which was
already a Jebusite High Place.
Matt Dabbs: That is highly confusing! The
inconsistency is not lost on everyone.
Matt Dabbs: What makes that
even more problematic is that Paul himself stated the OT was
useful for many things in 2 Tim 3:16. Mose of the time that
verse is used people are referencing the whole of scripture
or, in the case of Churches of Christ and our traditional
view on the Old Testament, the New Testament itself.
odd thing is that when Paul wrote those words the NT didn’t
exist in its present form and Paul is even writing those
words as scripture in the very moment they are being
written. What is Paul referring to when he writes “all
scripture” here? He is referring to the scriptures, literally
the writings, as he knew them and quoted them constantly in
his letters – the Old Testament, which based on our
traditional view, would put Paul at odds with himself.
On one hand he appears to say it is nailed to the cross in
Colossians and then on the other hand says that it is useful
for so many things that the OT is indispensable in the life of
All of the Prophets which define the REST
of Jesus FROM religious work were copied on scrolls and
even BOUND in a book long before the time of Jesus. The
Isaiah Scroll as the foundation was perhaps a hundred
years old when Jesus was born.
Great Isaiah Scroll (1QIsaa) is one of the
original seven Dead Sea Scrolls discovered in Qumran in
1947. It is the largest (734 cm) and best preserved of all
the biblical scrolls, and the only one that is almost
complete. The 54 columns contain all 66 chapters of the
Hebrew version of the biblical Book of Isaiah. Dating
from ca. 125 BCE, it is also one of the oldest of the
Dead Sea Scrolls, some one thousand years older than the
oldest manuscripts of the Hebrew Bible known to us before
the scrolls' discovery.
The Spirit OF
Christ or the Breath of God REPUDIATES everything Matt
Dabbs and the Wineskinners promote:
Is. 29:18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of
the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of
obscurity, and out of darkness.

We have shown that there was nothing in

Holy Scripture is defined
as the Prophets and other prophecies concerning Christ and
His New Creation. The Complete Jewish Bible existed
maybe 200 years before Christ and His quotes are taken from
the Septuagint. The dead sea scrolls contained many
psalms and a complete Book of Isaiah with the Qumran copy
dated long before Jesus.
Scribes wrote anything of
interest and had copiests making copies to be sold before
the crowd dispersed. There is nothing in the Old
Testament as THE LAW OF MOSES which had any place in the
Synagogue or Church from the beginning.
There was no remission of
sins or Spiritual Cleansing under the Law of Moses. The
Prophets inspired by God Who breathed the Spirit OF Christ
defined the future Kingdom of Messiah both inclusively and
exclusively. The Law was read to keep you from getting
killed but the Synagogue was for reading of the Prophets.
A Church of Christ is
built upon or EDUCATED by the Prophets and Apostles which
is what makes one WISE even today.
Eph. 2:19 Now
therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners,
with the saints, and of the household [excludes
priests and Levites] of God;
Eph. 2:20 And are built [Educated
by] upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets,
Jesus Christ himself
being the chief corner stone;
Eph. 2:21 In whom all the building fitly framed together
groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
Eph. 2:22 In whom ye also are builded together for an
habitation of God through the Spirit.
Therefore, Paul as did
Jesus defined Holy Scriptures as the Prophets and other
prophecies CONCERNING HIM.
But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned
and hast been assured
of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
2Tim. 3:15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy

more, the Gospels constantly rely heavily on the Old
Testament as scripture to make their case for Jesus. You can
say that was pre-resurrection and so they were under the Law
but that misses the point. The Gospels were not written down
during the ministry of Jesus. They were written down later,
in the 60s and beyond, even after Paul’s writings. The
Gospel writers made their points about Jesus from the very
book that we say is irrelevant to Christians. The Gospel
writers knew that the OT itself was the most relevant
document in existence when it came to understanding exactly
who Jesus was and is. The same could be said for Paul. The
same could be said for Revelation, written by the apostle
John, whose story cannot be told without the Old Testament
as it is referenced or alluded to hundreds of times in that
