The New Covenant is full of God’s grace. In order to enjoy such grace each one who belongs to the Lord must know what this New Covenant is. How sad that many of the Lord’s people today neither appreciate nor understand this New Covenant. For this reason we have a burden to release some messages on the New Covenant. Even so, the New Covenant is such a comprehensive subject that we cannot exhaust its richness with our limited learning, experience and words. Still, we look to God’s grace and are willing to share with His children the little we have received. Our earnest prayer is that God would enable us to know something of the New Covenant and lead us into its spiritual reality.

In these expositions, author Tim James demonstrates the book of Hebrews to show more fully than any other New Testament book that in Christ and His High Priestly ministry is to be found the fulfillment of the types, shadows and pictures of the priesthood and the offerings of the Old Testament. The inspired writer of Hebrews, without introduction or greeting, immediately sets before us that One to whom all the Old Testament pointed. The Lord Jesus Christ is that Word by whom God speaks to men and through whom we speak to God. Tim reminds us that Hebrews sets forth Christ as being better than the angels, the prophets and the priests of the Old Testament, and His sacrifice fully accomplished the salvation of God’s people. The New Covenant, Tim points out, is more excellent than the Old Covenant and Jesus Christ is not only the message of the New Covenant, but the Messenger of it as well. With clarity and simplicity, Tim sets forth the superiority of Christ and the power of his once-for-all sacrifice that “perfected forever them that are sanctified” (Hebrews 10:14). In a very methodical manner, Tim instructs the reader that the New Covenant exceeds the Old which has been done away with. This letter to the Hebrews (and all others) is a warning to all who forsake the gospel of free grace and return to the law as either a refuge for salvation or even as a rule of life. If a person professes to believe the gospel of Christ and then goes back to a legalistic system, such a treasonous act means that person, as Tim says, “will have no part in the world to come, where a man, the Man, the Messiah rules with His people.” As the author works his way through this Epistle, the reader will appreciate that he avoids technical and deep theological jargon and writes instead in an easy-to-read manner. While reading this manuscript, you will find the book to be not only an accurate exposition, but a very good devotional book as the author continually keeps the focus upon Christ and His substitutionary, justice-satisfying work of redemption.

Although covenant is a major theme in Hebrews, Morrison contends all mention of covenant can be deleted without damaging the coherence of the epistle or its christological conclusions. What role, then, does the covenant motif have in the epistle? The arguments in Hebrews are aimed at a Jewish audience--they ignore the needs and religious options relevant to Gentiles. For the readers, the Sinai covenant was the only relevant conceptual competitor to Christ. First-century Jews looked to the Abrahamic and Mosaic covenants as the basis of their obligations to God and God's promises toward them. Although most Jewish writers merged these covenants as if they were one, the author of Hebrews does not--he retains the Abrahamic promises while arguing that the Mosaic covenant is obsolete. The covenant concept supports the exhortations of Hebrews in two ways: 1) it provides the link between priesthood, worship rituals, and other laws, and 2) it enables the author to argue for allegiance to the community as allegiance to Christ.

Emmanuel Nathan's study is driven by the hermeneutical question of whether the covenantal contrasts in 2 Cor 3, in which Paul's use of 'new covenant' in 2 Cor 3:6 is set in stark polemical antithesis to an 'old covenant' (2 Cor 3:14), lie at the origin of the later Christian self-understanding as members of a new covenant that replaced the old. In other words, can Paul be said to be the founder of formative 'Christianity', even if one nuances the term 'Christianity' as a sect within the Judaisms of Paul's time? Using social memory theory, the author reframes the larger question of Paul's continuity or discontinuity with Judaism and seeks instead to examine the ways in which Paul refracted, redeployed, and reconfigured existing traditions in service of local needs, among them the formation and transformation of character among his community at Corinth.
Better. Covenant,. Better. Promises. Now Jesus, our High Priest, has been given a ministry that is far superior to the old priesthood, for he is the one who mediates for us a far better covenant with God, based on better promises.
