A New Covenant
31Behold, the days come, said the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: 32Not 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 Egypt; which my covenant they broke,
although I was an husband to them, said the LORD: 33But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, said
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. …
Mark 14:24 "This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many," he said to them.

The last super was a Passover supper in remembrance of the blood of the lamb that was painted on the door posts of the Israelites to save their
firstborn sons in Egypt . Four cups are drunk during this feast, Jesus took up the third cup ( the cup of redemption) wich represented the blood of
the lamb and proclaimed that it was HIS blood and we were now to do this in rememberence of HIM. The fourth cup (the cup of hope) will be drunk in
heaven ( I will take you for my people and I will be your God) the fourth cup was not drunk during the last supper.
2 Corinthians 3:6 He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant--not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit

Deuteronomy 29:14 I am making this covenant, with its oath, not only with you
Isaiah 59:21 "As for me, this is my covenant with them," says the LORD. "My Spirit, who is on you, will not depart from you, and my words that I have
put in your mouth will always be on your lips, on the lips of your children and on the lips of their descendants--from this time on and forever," says
Jeremiah 32:40 I will make an everlasting covenant with them: I will never stop doing good to them, and I will inspire them to fear me, so that they
will never turn away from me.
Jeremiah 33:14 "'The days are coming,' declares the LORD, 'when I will fulfill the good promise I made to the people of Israel and Judah.
So there you have it from the horses mouth so to speak. Two covenants, one old one new. The old was the law and the sacrifice of an unblemished lamb
in a reflection of what was to come in the future. The new was through the sacrifice of an unblemished man who came not to abolish the law and the
prophets but to fulfil them. The only man that ever lived who was able to keep all of the laws. Unblemished he was sacrificed and the new covenant was
given through his blood. He died and rose from death physically as a reflection of the spiritual death and spiritual resurrection believers have to go
through in order that the law ( the word, Jesus, through the Holy Spirit ) can be placed within them.
1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2The same was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made by
him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. …
9 The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world
did not recognize him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed
in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but
born of God.
14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of
grace and truth.
