Week 7:
"Better Than the Old Covenant"
(Hebrews 8)

Covenants are agreements that include promises.

Covenants can be made between greater and lessers or equals.

Divine Covenants are made by God with man. They are sealed or ratified by bloodshed and death.

Israel was God's primary recipient of the Old Covenant.

Due to Israel's "national rejection" of their Messiah, gentiles are for now the primary recipients of the New Covenant.
Jesus is Better Than the Old Covenant because He is a Better Priest, operating from a Better Place, offering Better Promises, resulting in Better People!
Better Priest:
Jesus is sinless, eternal, and His ministry has no end.

Better Place:
Jesus serves from the heavenly temple.

Better Promises:
Jesus, through New Birth, cleanses us from sin and enables holy living.
Better People:
Jesus enables our obedience through the indwelling Holy Spirit. He writes His Word on our hearts, not merely on stone tablets.
Recipients of the New Covenant are blood bought, heaven bound, Spirit empowered, Jesus advocating, sin hating, holiness craving sons/daughters of God!
