Jesus is the "New" in the New Covenant.

Updated: Mar 23, 2023

​“ The messianic promises of the new covenant have begun in Christ. It is now unthinkable to live as though Christ has not been born, died for our sins and risen to resurrection life. The old covenant pales in comparison with the power of the end of the ages that has dawned in Christ. God’s one covenant story holds together in his Son; and the entire drama must be understood in his light. Thus the covenant is newly shaped by the death and resurrection of Jesus.

And Jesus is the true glory of the old covenant as well as the new.

God’s covenant revelation in Moses looked toward Christ; and now that Christ has come, the entire covenant story is redefined in terms of him. Jesus Christ is the new in new covenant.”


Michael Williams, Far as the Curse is Found: The Covenant Story of Redemption, (Phillipsburg, NJ: P&R Publishing Company, 2005), 239-40.
