The Old Covenant was a solemn agreement between God and the Jewish partarch Abraham (see Genesis 17:1–14). In this covenant, God promised to bless Abraham`s descendants and to be their God and protector when they entered the land of Canaan. In exchange, the Jews promised to be faithful to God and not to worship other gods. As a sign of agreement, all Jewish men should be circumcised. Then your covenant will be annulled by death, and your agreement with Sheol will not be concluded; When the overwhelming scourge passes, it knocks you out. We will see that this point of convergence was confirmed by the experience of the pagan faithful in Galatia (3,1-5). Just as Jewish Christians learned that they were justified by faith in Christ and not by Jewish privileges or customs, the Gentile faithful lived the Spirit, a sign of federal blessing (3:14), by their response to faith in Christ`s message, not by their acceptance of circumcision, Jewish dietary rules or Sabbath instruction (cf. 4:10). The exclusion of compliance with the law as a basis for justification is further developed in 3:10-14. There, the law is extended to all works commissioned by the Mosaic Law. What is the concordance between God`s temple and idols? For we are the temple of the living God; As God said, «I will make my abode among them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people. The new covenant (or «New Testament») was secured by Jesus` death on the cross on Golgotha.
This agreement replaced the first covenant, since Jesus «paid» the price for human sin by presenting his own life as a perfect sacrifice. Under the New Covenant, Christ did not take the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a burnt heifer to sacrifice him (see Numeri 19:1–10 & 17–19). Instead, he offered his own body and blood to ensure forgiveness for all believers. «Now, because of all this, we are entering into a written agreement; And on the sealed document are the names of our leaders, our Levites and our priests. Because you said, «We have made an alliance with death, and we have an agreement with Sheol, if the crushing whip passes through it, it will not come to us, for we have made lies our refuge, and in The Lie we have sought refuge»; Heb. . .
