I. The Beginning  Matthew 27:51

II. The Basics

     A. The New Covenant

          1. Introduced in Jeremiah 31

          2. Put into place by Jesus’ sacrificial death Mt. 27:51

          3. Quoted in Hebrews 8

              Scripture: Hebrews 8:-12 / Jeremiah 31:31-34

     B. The “Moses” Covenant

         1. Is compared to The New Covenant Heb. 8:9

         2. Was conditional Exodus 19:5  

         3. Emphasized the priesthood Exodus 19:5,6

         4. Israel failed to keep it Heb. 8:9  

             a. Jeremiah wrote about the “Moses” Covenant Jer. 11:3,4

             b. Jeremiah stated that Israel broke the Covenant Jer. 11:10

III. The Back and Forth

   E. Moses, laws were put in Moses’ hands Ex 24:12

       New, God put His laws in their minds Heb. 8:10

   F. Moses, laws were written on tablets of stone Ex 24:12

       New, God writes His laws on their hearts H 8:10 

   G. Moses, they were told to know about the Lord 8:11

        New, believers will know the Lord Heb. 8:11

   H. Moses, the Prophets knew the Lord Isaiah 40;28

        New, it will not be just be the elite that know  8:11

    I. Moses, only a high priest came into God’s presence Heb. 9:1-8  

        (Exodus 25:22 God’s presence in the holy of holies)

        New, the entrance to holy of holies was torn open Heb.10:19-23

   J. Moses, the offering was only good for a year Heb. 10:3, 4

     New, Forgiveness is complete forever Heb. 8:12

IV. The Bottom Line 1 Peter 2:9-10

        The New Covenant finds its fulfillment in the Church
