Have you ever seen a New Testament only church, or see a Bible that was only a New Testament Bible and might have the book of Psalm and Proverb included with it? The New Testament is outstanding but not complete without the Old Testament. These thirty-nine books are in the Old Testament. Broken in into two parts, the Tanakh with the Torah as the first five books of Moses. The Old Testament is in Hebrew, but the books of Ezra, Jeremiah, and Daniel will have a little Aramaic, which is the language of Jesus when He prayed saying “Abba Father.” The word Abba is an intimate word but does not mean, “Daddy,’ as many believe, but still intimate.

Galatians 4:4 But when the fullness of the time came, God sent His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, 5 so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons and daughters. 6 Because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying out, “Abba! Father!” 7 Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through God.
