Distinctive #2-- The Precedence of the New Testament
The Bible is not flat. The teaching of Jesus and the apostles takes precedence over the Law and Prophets. We come to understand the Old Testament through Jesus and the apostles.

Now that the promises are being fulfilled this should be the primary focus - especially the gospels and the Sermon on the Mount.
