I'm not sure what you are asking. shrug

But the NT is based upon the OT. In fact, it has been suggested that c. 85% of the NT consists of quotes and allusions from the OT. One doesn't read "Christianity back into the Old Testament" but rather the old adage has it right... "The New is in the Old contained. The Old is in New explained." We get our hermeneutical methodology from the inspired NT writers, i.e., how they interpreted and understood the OT, particularly in the fulfillment of OT prophesy and its symbolism.
