Sermon: Transitioning From the Old to the New Covenant

  • 1 Corinthians 11:25 Jesus declared the New Covenant

                             or the New Testament was in His blood

  • Under the Old Covenant or the Old Testament

  • The laws were written on tablets of stone

  • The laws were put into Moses hands

  • Israel was told to know about the Lord

  • The “Seat of Moses” became the “Supreme Court”

  • Exodus 18: 15, 16

  • In Jesus Day – Matthew 23:1, 2; the Pharisees

  • The Law is Not the Problem

  • 1 Timothy 1:8 The Law is good if used properly

  • The Problem is that power corrupts

  • Matthew 23:4 used to oppress

  • Matthew 15:3-6 used to own advantage

Mark 12:38-40a

  • Ezekiel 34:1-6 The “Shepherds” of Israel

  • The Pharisees were there when The Son arrived

  • Matthew 21:33-46

  • The Vineyard was to be replaced by the Church

  • Mt. 21:41,42

  • Ephesians 2:20, 21

  • 21:43 The Church will be the Vineyard

  • 21:44 Accepting Jesus is vital

Broken at the cross or crushed in the end

  • 21:45 The Pharisees understood

  • Under the New Covenant

  • The Law in minds and hearts; Jer. 33:33; Heb. 8:10

  • They will know the Lord; Jer. 33:34; Heb. 8:11

  • The New Covenant needed the Church

  • The Old could not be patched Matthew 9:16

  • The Old could not contain the expansion of the new Matthew 9:17

  • New wine: Life of the New Covenant in Jesus’ blood

  • New wineskins: Jews & Gentiles together in the Church
