June 20, 2020 | Understanding the New Covenant, Part 2

Jesus’ Blood Sealed the New Covenant

Jesus came to Earth to radically change the hearts of the Israelites and to bring forgiveness for the sins of the world. Because of Jesus’ blood, the New Covenant brings blessing to Israel and all who place their faith in Him for salvation. In part 2 of our three-week series on the New Covenant, we’re remembering and celebrating how Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross sealed this covenant.

The Jewish community knew about the New Covenant before Jesus was born, but the Israelites’ sin stood between them and the full enjoyment of God’s blessing. God promised He would change their hearts and help them live in obedience. Through His sacrifice Jesus not only established His promises to Israel; He also gave all who believe in Him the right to be the sons and daughters of God. Rejoice in the knowledge that Jesus’ blood bought our freedom from sin!

Apples of Gold: How Can We Believe in Jesus and Still Say We are Jews?

After living in Israel for 36 years, Zvi could walk down the street and be recognized by many. Some greeted him warmly, others greeted him with scorn and ridicule. One man stopped and looked at him in shock and said, “Are you still alive? People like you should be dead!” When Zvi replied by sharing his faith in Jesus, the man accused him of believing in a new religion. With a crowd around him, Zvi explained to them that believing in Jesus was not something new but something God talked about in the Hebrew Scriptures.

Zvi’s story is available in Elwood McQuaid’s book, “Zvi: The Miraculous Story of Triumph over the Holocaust,” available at our online store.

More stories from Zvi are also available in his book, “The Best of Zvi,” available at our online store.
