I believe the Old Testament is just as important as the New Testament. After studying both I don't think they can really be separated. Neither makes real sense without the other.

Just as a curiosity thing, how do Christian(Oh Gods, this is gonna sound offensive. I'm SO sorry. I genuinely don't mean it to be if it comes out this way. I can't word it) How do Christians match the OT God with the NT God? If they're the same God, why is one seemingly incredibly cruel, all smiting and what not, but then humans kill his son and he's suddenly... Nice? Wouldn't you be even MORE smitey over that??
Apparently we're made in Gods image, and we have a light and dark side, so theoretically so would God, but it just always seems odd that there seems to be this switch that made God go from being really mean to really nice.

Re: Old Testament?
Seventh Day Adventist believe and follow the Old testament.... The 10 commandments for example.

That's interesting, in Hebrew i thought the word for angel is Malach?
Also my understanding was that we were created in G-DS image means we were made with in his nature and mind, the human spirit , like G-d is immortal it has nothing to do with physical appearance
A perfect example of different interpretations of the bible!

Ok here is my understanding as a Jew. The old testament u refer to is a very lose translation of the Hebrew/Aramaic original. The Hebrew alphabet is numerical too so the meaning is very multi layered. It is not just face value...it is greatly debated. Gd has many names in the Torah. Malach is an angel. We r created in gds image. Gd create choice and so comes the concept of evil or wrong doing.
