Overview

In Jeremiah 31, God declares he will make a New Covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah. How we understand that covenant has tremendous importance for every area of theology. An Introduction to the New Covenant examines the covenant to discover who are the recipients of the promised blessings and concludes that the New Covenant is intended exclusively for Israel and Judah.

While this book asserts that the church is not related to the New Covenant, God’s promises to the nation of Israel have profound implications for every believer, every day.

“This chapter will put forth the position that the ‘New Covenant’ of the Upper Room Discourse is indeed the same as the ‘New Covenant’ of Jeremiah 31, but that the New Covenant has not yet been enacted, nor is the Church a participant in the New Covenant.” (Page 158)

“When God established this formal agreement with Abraham and his progeny in the early second millennium, BC, it made a fundamental change in His relation with mankind that continues through today until the end of time.” (Page 280)

“The primary one is evangelism and then sanctification of the individuals who are saved” (Page 321)

“Thus, though Jesus’ blood shed at Calvary bears a definite relationship to the New Covenant, its shedding was not the event that ‘cut,’ or enacted, the New Covenant. The shedding of Jesus’ blood was ancillary to the covenant and makes the cutting of the covenant possible, since by it, Israel must be sanctified and made suitable for entrance into the covenant. But the actual cutting of the covenant awaits the swearing of the oath by Israel, an event that will accompany the Second Coming of Christ.” (Page 169)

“As Ware, and many others see it, the church can presently be participating in Israel’s New Covenant through the already not yet eschatological framework. He sees the problem solved ‘when we permit the fulfillment of such eschatological promises to take both a preliminary and partial (‘already’) fulfillment as well as a later full and complete (‘not yet’) realization.” (Pages 20–21)
