A scarlet stream courses its way through the scriptures culminating at the foot of Calvary's cross. From the fall of man in the Garden of Eden to the final victory of the redeemed pictured in Revelation, the shedding of blood is central to this story of the ages. Why did God require sacrifices throughout history and why, ultimately, did His plan necessitate the shedding of the blood of Christ? In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak we consider why the blood of Jesus is the price of the sinner's redemption.
The New Covenant that was established through Jesus Christ is not only better in its very nature but in what it provides. In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak we continue our study of the New and Better Covenant and why it is folly to attempt to live under the Old Agreement.
The bible reveals several covenants God has made with man at various times. Of these, two are particularly far-reaching in their scope. The Old Covenant was established through Moses with the ancient Jews. It was a fleshly covenant. The prophet Jeremiah pointed to a time, however, when God would establish a new covenant with spiritual Israel through Jesus Christ. Instead of being flashy, it is spiritual. Jews were born into the covenant by essence of their physical birth and subsequent circumcision. God's people would be born into the second covenant by means of a second birth and a circumcision of the heart. In part one of a two-part lesson we learn about The New and Better Covenant.
