The definition of the New Covenant from Wikipedia:
“The phrase “a new covenant” is used in the Bible (both in the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament) to refer to an epochal relationship of restoration and peace following a period of trial and judgment. It is often thought of as an eschatological messianic age or world to come, and is related to the biblical concept of the kingdom of God.”
According to Hebrews 8:13 (below), The New Covenant will at some point replace the Mosaic Covenant and dissolve the Torah (Law / Commandments) that are contained therein. Most of our churches today teach that the New Covenant went into effect at the cross. Some go as far to say the Church Age, derived from Dispensationalism Theology is the establishment of God’s Kingdom here on earth. Instead of taking the time here to discuss the issues related to Dispensationalism, please review this teaching by 119 Ministries.
Let’s examine the scriptural evidence on the New Covenant establishment and study the findings together.
This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.
~ (Matthew 14:24)
In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.
~ (Hebrews 8:13)
