“Jesus has become the guarantee of a better covenant”
Hebrews 7:22b (NIV)
Some Christians are confused because of misunderstandings about the relationship between the Old and New Testaments. Some wrongly drive a wedge between the two Testaments, leading to muddled ideas such as ‘the God of Old Testament was a God of wrath and law, but the God of the New Testament is a God of love and grace’. Others fail to see that the theocratic nation of Israel has passed away, leading to falsehoods such as thinking that the material blessings promised to the nation of Israel must mean there are ‘health, wealth and prosperity’ promises for modern day believers.
The continuity of the moral law, in particular, is a subject that is often misunderstood when the relationship between the Testaments is confused. This series of lectures aims to shed some light on these important matters.
