What Old Testament books are the most important keys to the Bible?

Every Bible book is necessary (2 Timothy 3:16, 17), but some seem more central.

Genesis, often called "the seed plot of the Bible," lays the foundation for all God's revealed works, indicating the purpose of matter, man, and marriage. Without the Fall, the rest of Scripture unravels. Gods plans for human government and Israel flow from Genesis. Many Bible doctrines are first mentioned in Genesis.

In the relatively short book of Daniel lies the "backbone of prophecy" (Daniel 9). It unfolds the "Times of the Gentiles." The prophetic material in Matthew and the Revelation is closely related to Daniel.
