Accepted AnswerabebstelsOffline0The old testament is suppose to give us an insight into history of how we finally come to have Christianity. It teaches us how the world came to be and the awesomeness of God and how God once dealt with man. Though we do not follow it anymore, there are a lot of wisdom to be learnt from the books of the old testament.
I still read the old testament. It is a schoolmaster as in Galatians 3:24-25.
