The new covenant contract (or “new will”) was guaranteed by the death of Jesus on the cross on Golgotha. This agreement replaced the first covenant, when Jesus “paid” the price of men`s sin by offering his own life as a perfect sacrifice. Under the new covenant, Christ did not take as an offering the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a burnt coloration (see figures 19:1-10 – 17-19). Instead, he offered his own body and blood to ensure the forgiveness of all believers. The ancient covenant was a solemn agreement between God and the Jewish Partiarchabraham (see Genesis 17:1-14). In this covenant, God promised to bless the descendants of Abraham and to be their God and protector when they arrived in the land of Canaan. In return, the Jews promised to be faithful to God and not worship other gods. As a sign of the United, all Jewish males should be circumcised. What is the agreement between the temple of God and the idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said: I will make my abode among them, and I will walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people. Now from all this We make a written agreement; And on the sealed document, there are the names of our leaders, our Levites and our priests. That`s good. 9:1-14 The author compares the first covenant (literally the Old Testament) to the new federal treaty (literally the “new will”).
Then your covenant with death will be annulled, and your consent with sheol will not exist; If the crushing plague passes, it depresses you. For you said, “We have made an alliance with death, and we have an agreement with Le Chéol, if the crushing whip passes through him, will not come to us, for we have made lies our refuge, and we have found refuge in lies. We will see that this point of agreement was confirmed by the experience of pagan believers in Galatia (3:1-5). Just as Jewish Christians learned that they were justified by faith in Christ and not by Jewish prerogatives or customs, believers experienced the Spirit, the sign of the Alliance`s decency (3:14), by their response to faith in Christ`s message, and not by their acceptance of circumcision, Jewish dietary rules or the Sabbath (cf. 4:10). The exclusion of compliance as a basis for justification is developed more broadly in 3:10-14. There, the law is extended to encompass all the works of the Mosaic Law. Do not deprive yourself of one another, except perhaps by unity for a limited time, so that you may surrender to prayer; but then you come together so that Satan does not seduce you because of your lack of self-control. . Just leave what you say is “yes” or “no”; Anything but this comes from evil.
The Jews considered themselves the people of God; The pagans were considered sinners because they were not part of this federal people. But Jewish Christians have recognized that God`s judicial assertion that someone was part of the federal people is not based on this Judeo-pagan distinction. Confederation is no longer nationalistic. Although they claimed privileged status as Jews, they now knew, as Jewish Christians, that only those who believe in Jesus Christ are justified by God to belong to the United family. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. “Behold, God is my salvation, I trust and I will not be afraid; for the Lord, God, is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation. “For the man who does not love his wife, but who separates from her,” said the Lord, the God of Israel, covers his robe with strength, says the Lord of the armies.
