For one reason only- they claim that it holds prophecies concerning Jesus; thus, it's considered proof that he was the Christ and purportedly legitimizes Christianity.

. Jesus is the God of the Old Testament, and He never said to go into "modern" Israel, it was "ANCIENT" Israel and the victims were definitely NOT innocent. There is NO contradiction between the OT and the NT. ____________________________________

You will need to read what the Old Testament says, but I'm pretty sure you never will. You just might learn that your preconceived ideas are not correct, and so you'll never read it. It's all good, however. You don't need to read any scriptures. They help, no question, but, no, you absolutely do not NEED to read them. I know lots of folks who are just really nice folks who have no interest in religion, so I know that's true. So what's the point? Well, having read them, I know what the point is, but in order for you to get a clue, you'd need to read them, and I'm not just talking snippets, or just reading them as in, "Let's see what kind of BS I can find in this garbage!" I'm absolutely fascinated by the scriptures on so many levels. I think anyone who really gets into them is similarly intrigued. But I'd be making it up if I said it was the only show in town, or that it's indispensible. But it's also true that you really shouldn't try to knock something when you have no clue what it is, and until you have swum in the ocean, you have no idea what it's like. Period.
