The Old Testament as an Example

In reading 1 Corinthians 10 today, I was reminded that the Old Testament stories, events, and characters very much serve as an example to us even today.

“Now these things took place as examples for us, that we might not desire evil as they did…Now these things happened to them as an example, but they were written down for our instruction, on whom the end of the ages has come.”
1 Corinthians 10:6, 11

“For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.”
Romans 15:4
