Everything was basically the same, except that we enjoy a greater measure of the Spirit. We also have a more detailed knowledge about the Savior. The OT saints trusted in Christ through shadows and types while we see Him in the fulfillment.
Heb 11:38 of whom the world was not worthy--wandering about in deserts and mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.
Heb 11:39 And all these, though commended through their faith, did not receive what was promised,
Heb 11:40 since God had provided something better for us, that apart from us they should not be made perfect.
