Heb 8

How do we parallel the Jews?
Church ministry > Christ
Check your covenant with Christ
High priest
Seated at the right hand
Implies the work of Christ is finished

The model can never be as good as the original.
The Mosaic covenant Exo 19
Never fulfilled the laws
Doomed to failure cause of man’s obedience.

New covenant
What being a Christian is like
Heart made of flesh
Law written on our hearts
A new heart to obey God’s law
Not legalistic
Fulfills the principals of the law

Ability to discern spiritual truth
God has changed your heart to understand.
Not head knowledge but heart

Superior forgiveness
He wills not to remember
God deals individually with us.

Why the old covenant then?
In God’s timing.
Gal 4:1-7
Hold the inheritance until Christ
