The New Covenant, Summary:

(1) “Better” than the Mosaic covenant not morally, but efficaciously Hebrews 7:19; Romans 8:3,4.

(2) Established on “better” (i.e. unconditional) promises. In the Mosaic Covenant God said, “If ye will” Exodus 19:5, in the New Covenant He says, “I will”Hebrews 8:10,12.

(3) Under the Mosaic Covenant obedience sprang from fear Hebrews 2:2; 12:25-27 under the New from a willing heart and mind Hebrews 8:10.

(4) The New Covenant secures the personal revelation of the Lord to every believer Hebrews 8:11.

(5) the complete oblivion of sins Hebrews 8:12; 10:17; 10:3.

(6) rests upon an accomplished redemption Matthew 26:27,28; 1 Corinthians 11:25; Hebrews 9:11,12,18- 23.

(7) and secures the perpetuity, future conversion, and blessing of Israel. Jeremiah 31:31-40. See also “Kingdom (O.T.),” and 2 Samuel 7:8-17.

The New Covenant is the eighth, thus speaking of resurrection and of eternal completeness.

Hebrews 8:8

For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:

Hebrews 7:19

For the law made perfect, but the bringing in of a did; by the which we draw nigh unto God.

Romans 8:3-4

3 For what the law could not do, in that it was through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the , and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

4 That the of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Exodus 19:5

Now therefore, if ye will indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:

Hebrews 8:10-12

10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their , and write them in their : and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:

11 And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, : for all shall know me, from the .

12 For I will be to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I no more.

Hebrews 2:2

For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every and received a just recompence of reward;

Hebrews 12:25-27

25 See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on , much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from :

26 Whose then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.

27 And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.


And their sins and will I remember no more.

Hebrews 10:3

But in those there is a remembrance again made of sins every year.

Matthew 26:27-28

27 And he took the cup, and gave , and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;

28 For this is my of the new testament, which is shed for many for the of sins.

1 Corinthians 11:25

After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the : this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in of me.

Hebrews 9:11-12, 18- 23

11 But Christ being come an of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect , not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;

12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal for us.

18 Whereupon neither the first testament was without blood.

19 For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the , and all the people,

20 Saying, This is the blood of the which God hath enjoined unto you.

21 Moreover he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle, and all the of the ministry.

22 And almost all things are by the law with blood; and without of blood is no remission.

23 It was therefore necessary that the of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.

Jeremiah 31:31-40

31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with , and with the house of Judah:

32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of ; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:

33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the ; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, : for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their , and I will remember their sin no more.

35 Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The is his name:

36 If those depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a before me for ever.

37 Thus saith the LORD; If heaven above can be measured, and the of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the for all that they have done, saith the LORD.

38 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that the city shall be built to the LORD from the tower of Hananeel unto the gate of the corner.

39 And the shall yet go forth over against it upon the hill Gareb, and shall compass about to Goath.

39 And the whole valley of the dead bodies, and of the ashes, and all the fields unto the brook of Kidron, unto the corner of the horse gate toward the east, shall be unto the LORD; it shall not be plucked up, nor thrown down any more for ever.

2 Samuel 7:8-17

8 Now therefore so shalt thou say unto my servant David, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I took thee from the sheepcote, from following the sheep, to be over my people, over Israel:

9 And I was with thee whithersoever thou wentest, and have cut off all thine enemies out of thy sight, and have made thee a , like unto the name of the great men that are in the earth.

10 Moreover I will a place for my people Israel, and will them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as beforetime,

11 And as since the time that I commanded judges to be over my people Israel, and have caused thee to from all thine enemies. Also the LORD telleth thee that he will make thee an house.

12 And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his .

13 He shall build an house for my name, and I will stablish the of his kingdom for ever.

14 I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commit iniquity, I will him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men:

15 But my shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee.

16 And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be for ever.

17 According to all these words, and according to all this vision, so did speak unto David.
