You never know. In Catholicism - and Catholics are traditionally supposed
not to be Bible-readers - the Old Testament is held to be full of
"foreshadowings" that demonstrate the truth of the New Testament, hence the
truth of the One, True Faith. The OT, for all practical, theological
purposes, has nothing to do with Jewish doctrine. Rather, it's the
backstory of the NT. And, if there's anything in the OT that is even
tangentially relevant to Christian doctrine, it was noticed and noted a
thousand years before Luther. Cf., e.g. Melchizedek.

Old Testament lines matter.
