The Joy in Responsibility
(An In-Depth Study of Hebrews)
Jesus – Mediator of a Better Covenant (verses 6-9)
Jesus’ ministry is to usher in a New Covenant (vs 6)
The New Covenant is founded on better promises (vs 7)
Old Covenant was a shadow (not faultless)
New Covenant is perfect Reality (faultless)
Move to verse 13…
The Old Covenant is now obsolete.
Remember from last lesson; a major change happened as the shadow was replaced with reality. Transformed from a “Come and see” to a “Go and tell” relationship.
Many things really did change.
Back to verses 10-11…
New Covenant promises described: (Verses 10-11)
God will write on your heart
God WILL BE your God
How the promises are possible: (verse 12)
Mercy toward your iniquities
Remember your sins no more
God is completely for you, so who can be against you?
