Old vs. New

Are there similar stories in both the New Testament and Old Testament?

The entire bible is a timeline, a continuum that includes various characters who provide the reader with various godly lessons. Yes, these characters, outside of The Lord, have made mistakes, but they are written to teach that all humans occasionally make errors that will lead to various consequences.

According to Elisha…

2 Kings 6:22

“Do not kill them,” he answered. “Would you kill those you have captured with your own sword or bow? Set food and water before them so that they may eat and drink and then go back to their master.”

In this example, Elisha is heaping burning coals on their head. Instead of directing physical punishment against enemies, Elisha understands that God has said,

“Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. Romans 12:19

The Bible is an entire story and you cannot just read the New Testament without reading the Okd Testament as well if you desire to gain a complete understanding of our Lord and Savior who is Eternal.
