Christian apologists do use some verses from the old testament to establish what they called new covenant, a Covenant that abolished the law of moses, even though Jesus clearly declared that he came not to abolish the law of moses. Is the so called new covenant about the coming of jesus christ??
But God found fault with the people and said: “The time is coming, declares the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.
It will not be like the covenant I made with their forefathers when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they did not remain faithful to my covenant, and I turned away from them, declares the Lord.
This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time, declares the Lord. I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.
No longer will a man teach his neighbor, or a man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest.
For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.”
By calling this covenant “new,” he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and aging will soon disappear.
The new covenant is with the people of the house of Israel and Judah, are all christians from Israel or Judah??
During the new covenant era, people will no longer be taught to know God. funny enough, Jesus and his disciples taught in so many places, yet the Jews won’t believe, all of them will know God, did all the Jews know God during the time of jesus and even now?
During the new covenant era, God will not remember the sins of the people no more! Really?? you claimed new covenant is about Jesus, yet people will be punished for rejecting jesus, unfortunately in the new covenant, God will no longer remember the sins of the people.
He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.
They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the majesty of his power
The new covenant will make the first one obsolete? Something that will disappear?
The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever.”
