A Promise Or Agreement With God

Provided by KOLEL-The Adult Centre for Liberal Jewish Learning, affiliated with the Canadian reform movement. For the first time on his own in a journey that, like his grandfather Abraham`s journey before him, is both spiritual and physical, Jacob must establish his own relationship with God. At this point, the Briton – the alliance founded first with Abraham – is individual and must be confirmed by each generation. The New Covenant is a biblical interpretation that stems in part from a sentence in the book of Jeremiah (Jeremiah 31:31) in the Hebrew Bible. There are several Christian eschatologies that continue to define the New Covenant. For example, an initiated eschatology defines and describes the New Covenant as a permanent relationship between Christians and God, which will be fully realized after the reintroducation of Christ; that is, it will not only be in the full fruit of the believer`s heart, but also in the future outer world. [Citation required] The link between the blood of Christ and the New Covenant is seen in most modern English translations of the New Testament[8] with the proverb: “This cup that is poured for you is the new covenant in my blood.” [9] It is significant that each of these two aspects is later ratified by the covenant: (1) the national dimension of God`s promise is at the center of gene 15, where God establishes an “alliance with Abram” (Gen 15, 18) (1) (gen 15, 18). (2) The international dimension of the promise is apparently ignored in the G15, but it is interpreted in Gen 17 (cf. 4-6, 16), where God announces an “eternal covenant” (Gen 17,7), known as the “covenant of circumcision” (C 7:8).

Jesus exercises not only a permanent, perfect and heavenly priesthood (Heb 7:23-8:6), but the covenant, Of which he is the mediator, “is founded by better promises” (He 8, 6b), declared in the form of “eternal redemption” (9,12) and an “eternal inheritance” (9,15), which is protected by the blood of Christ (He 9, 11-10, 18), and later described as “Heb of the Eternal Covenant” (13:20). Like Paul, the opposition is therefore not between something bad and good, but between something good (but temporal) and something better (because, unlike the old covenant, the novelty is unbreakable and eternal). I think our deep understanding of all the covenants, especially the covenants we made when we were sealed in the temple, came during the years when each of our first three babies died in infancy.
