-The '''Old Testament''' is the Christian term for the [[Hebrew Bible]], a collection of religious writings by [[Israelites|ancient Israelites]] that form the first section of the [[Christian Bible]], to which were added a second collection of writings referred to as the [[New Testament]]. The books included in the Old Testament (the [[Canon of the Old Testament|Old Testament canon]]) varies markedly between [[Christian denominations]]; [[Protestants]] accept only the books of the [[Tanakh|official Jewish Hebrew Bible canon]] as their Old Testament but divide it into 39 books, while [[Catholics]], the [[Eastern Orthodox]], [[Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria|Coptic]] and [[Ethiopian church]]es accept a considerably larger collection of writings in their Old Testament canon.+While most [[Christian theology]] reflects the view that [[Biblical law in Christianity|at least some Mosaic Laws have been set aside]] under the [[New Covenant]], there are [[New Covenant Theology|some theology systems]] that view the entire [[Old Covenant|Mosaic or Old Covenant]] as [[Wiktionary:abrogated|abrogated]] in that all of the [[Mosaic Laws]] are set aside for the [[Law of Christ]].

-The books can be broadly divided into several sections: 1) the first five books or [[Torah|Pentateuch (Torah)]], 2) the history books telling the history of the [[Israelite]]s, from their [[conquest of Canaan]] to their [[Babylonian exile|defeat and exile in Babylon]]; 3) the poetic and "[[Sapiential Books|Wisdom]]" books dealing, in various forms, with [[Ethics|questions of good and evil in the world]]; 4) and the [[Nevi'im|books of the biblical prophets]], warning of the consequences of turning away from God.+

While most Christian theology reflects the view that at least some Mosaic Laws have been set aside under the New Covenant, there are some theology systems that view the entire Mosaic or Old Covenant as abrogated in that all of the Mosaic Laws are set aside for the Law of Christ.

However, other theologians do not subscribe to this view, believing that the Law and the Prophets form the basis of Christian living and Christian ethics, and are therefore not abrogated; rather, they can only be understood in their historical context subsequent to the advent of the Messiah.
