There is multiple reasons why it is important to study the hebrew bible today and there is multiple reasons to suggest that it is still relevant today. One of the reasons that it is important to study the hebrew bible today is to get a grasp of how God hasn 't changed over the years. Another reason to study the hebrew bible today is to see how much the humans have changed through the times and how we have relied/not on God and his everlasting power. There is lots of things that we can pull away from the hebrew bible that relate to the world today. God, a vastly unimaginably big, incomprehensible being of immense power and responsibility.

In the same way today we sometimes don 't trust God to have the plan but he really does. We sometimes think we can do it on our own strength but I have found through running that that is not the case at all we need his strength to get us through the day.
