Covenants: New Covenant

The New Covenant

Following God's covenants with Noah, Abraham, Moses, and David, we can see His faithfulness through the Old Testament. However, often repeated in the story of the Old Testament is the theme of people who rebel against God's word and wisdom. Yet, amid rebellion, God's prophets spoke of future hope and a future covenant.

Jeremiah 31:31–34 (NKJV)

Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah— not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, says the Lord. But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, 'Know the Lord,' for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more."

The anticipation and expectation of the Scriptures push forward to the New Covenant and Jesus. Jesus is the faithful Covenant Partner as the author of Hebrews outlines. But not only is Jesus the trustworthy Covenant Partner, He is also more excellent and high above all.
