- Hebrews 8:1-13
- Hebrews 8:6 – The new covenant is built on better promises in that our sins are forgiven forever – not just rolled forward year by year.
- Hebrews 8:10 – Being God’s people involves following the pattern God has set for us, both personally and collectively.
- Hebrews 8:13 – See Jeremiah 31:31. This is exactly what Jeremiah prophesied over 700 years earlier. The old law is obsolete and no longer in force.
- Some argue that there was a transition period in AD 33-70 during which the Jews were still to worship according to the old covenant. Hebrews 13:10 and 10:9 show this not to be true. When the new covenant was in effect (Acts 2), the old covenant was immediately obsolete.
