The New Testament is called the New Covenant in Hebrew. This covenant is foretold in Jeremiah (ירמיהו) 31:30ff. It says that “the days are coming” when the Lord will make His new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah. God promises to put His law within them and on their hearts, not just on stone. He will forgive sins and remember them no more. Those who believe won’t just know about God, they will really know Him.
The New Covenant was initiated through the death, and resurrection of Yeshua the Messiah. He is moving this process forward every day, and in the future will bring His work of redemption to completion.
The New Testament is the natural continuation of the Tanakh. It’s the Sequel. Many people are shocked when they discover just how Jewish the New Testament really is. There are almost 1,000 quotes from the Hebrew Bible in it. That’s because this book was written by 8 Jewish men. They thought of themselves as Jews who had embraced the Jewish Messiah, as promised according to the Scriptures.
The person who wrote almost half of the books in it had a favorite name for the community of disciples who followed Yeshua. He called them the Way. Read it and see what you think about it.
