Q: What is the New Covenant, and why should I keep it?
A: The Bible contains two types of laws: The Law of Moses and the Law of Christ (1Co 9:20-21). The Law of Moses refers to what the Israelites observed in the Old Testament. The Law of Christ means the teachings given by Jesus Christ in the New Testament. These laws are also called the Old Covenant and the New Covenant, respectively.
Through the prophet Jeremiah, God said He would establish the New Covenant in the future.
Why should I keep the New Covenant?
When we celebrate the New Covenant Passover, we receive Jesus Christ’s flesh and blood and gain eternal life. This is why we must keep the New Covenant. And 2,000 years ago, the disciples felt the same way.
The New Covenant does not only include the Passover, it also includes everything else Jesus taught, including observing the rest of the annual Feasts of God (Jn 7; Ac 2) the weekly Sabbath (Lk 4:16), and the regulation of the women’s veil. When we follow the commands of the New Covenant, we can enter into eternal life (Mt 19:17).
