The Old Testament is a volume of 39 books that were originally written in Hebrew that make up part of the Christian Bible as well as the entirety of the Jewish Tanakh. It includes the five books of Moses called the Torah, plus the historical narrative books, the book of Job, the wisdom books such as Proverbs and Ecclesiastes, the Psalms, the Song of Solomon, and the prophetic books. The focus of the Old Testament for the Jews is the formation of Israel and God's plan to protect His people until the Messiah comes to bring in a period of world peace, while for the Christians it is the prelude to the appearance of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who is the Messiah to the Jews and Savior of the world.
In the Left Behind books, prophecies from the Old Testament that were at the time unfulfilled find their fulfillment during the periods of the Tribulation and the Millennial Kingdom. In addition, people from the Old Testament appear at the first resurrection to be given their rewards from Jesus Christ for their faith, and some also show up from time to time at the Children Of The Tribulation school to tell stories of their exploits so that the children would put their faith in Jesus before their 100th birthday.
In "Tribulation Force", Dr. Tsion Ben-Judah during his televised revelation of the Messiah used Old Testament Scriptures to help his viewers understand how He was prophesied to appear.
