Third Thursday of Advent - The New Covenant

Jeremiah 31:31-34 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)

The New Covenant
 31 "Look, the days are coming"—[this is] the LORD's declaration—"when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah. 32 [This one will] not be like the covenant I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt—a covenant they broke even though I had married them" —the LORD's declaration. 33 "Instead, this is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after those days"—the LORD's declaration. "I will place My law within them and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be My people. 34 No longer will one teach his neighbor or his brother, saying: Know the LORD, for they will all know Me, from the least to the greatest of them"—the LORD's declaration. "For I will forgive their wrongdoing and never again remember their sin."

  1. I want to comment about this verse.
    It is about the berit khadashah (“new covenant”).

    If you read the verses in Hebrew you see that in the berit khadashah the Creator will put Torah (that is the mitzwot (commandments in Torah) in the hearts of the followers of the berit (“covenant”). The Creator does not change (Malakhi 3:6) and his mitzwot (“commandments” ) does not change (Devarim (“Deuteronomy”) 13:1-6).

    I think that the website Netzarim will be of interest to you. It contains logical and scientific research, previously unknown to most Christians, about the first century Ribi Yehoshua (ha-Mashiakh, the Messiah) from Nazareth and what he and his followers taught. His teachings are in accordance with Torah, the instruction manual, of the Creator to humankind.

    All the best, Anders Branderud
