Old (Tanakh) And New (Brit) Testaments in agreement

About The Newness Promised in The Bible (Ezekiel 36:26-27) – Born Again (John 3:3).

The Old Testament spoke of newness which could be had by believing the New – by believing in Messiah (Christ) who was given [as high priest in the order of Melchizadek (Psalm 110:4, 45:7)] for the [mediating (1 Timothy 2:5)] of the New covenant (Isaiah 42:6, 49:8, 2 Corinthians 5:17).

This article simply aims to list some of the blessings which are found in the New Covenant – one of the major blessings being everlasting life without end at resurrection.

Hebrews 8:13 Explained: ‘…a new covenant, he makes the first one obsolete.’

The following explanation is intended to share how Hebrews 8:13 in no way says that a believer in Christ (Messiah) no longer observes the law of Moses.

Rather, in context we will see that it speaks of something else, in that a believer is nolonger destined for judgement under the old covenant and liable to eventually perish (Isaiah 28:22).

Instead, a believer is under the new covenant (Jeremiah 31:31, Isaiah 42:6, 49:8) which comes with saving grace (Psalm 110:4, Isaiah 53:11-12), and ultimately means everlasting life without end at ressurection (Isaiah 28:16, 28:18, 53:11-12).

With this faith, a believer observes the Law of Moses (Torah);

Do we then overthrow the law by this faith? By no means! On the contrary, we uphold the law.
Romans 3:31 ESV

‘Why Is The New Testament Written In Greek And Not Hebrew?’

The purpose of this explanation, is to show how the New Testament (Brit Chadasha) was written in languages native to ancient Israel, and also Greek.

We know this as the annointed holy Jews who penned the New Testament, such as the apostle Paul, were multi-lingual and had to communicate with people of different languages – both verbally (Acts 17:22) and also with written letters and manuscripts (Galatians 6:11), outside of Israel.

The ‘suffering servant’ is a Man, Given As A Covenant For The Nation (Isaiah 42:6, 49:8)

This explanation aims to share Isaiah 42:6, 49:8, two fantastic verses which show us that the servant whom G-d sent is one man (Messiah/Christ) and therefore not a nation (many people).

These verses both state Messiah was ‘given’ as/for a [new] ‘covenant’ (ref. Jeremiah 31:31) for the many – in the sense that he is the High Priest in the order of Melchizadek (Psalm 110:4, 45:7) for the new covenant.

Why did Christ say; ‘…my God my God, why have you forsaken me…’? (Matthew 27:46 explained)

Showing how Matthew 27:46 indeed references the beginning of Psalm 22:1

‘…”My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”…’
(Psalm 22:1 NIV)

– however the recitation of the Psalm stops there, and the actual context of what is being communicated is found in Isaiah 49:4

‘…“I have labored in vain;… yet surely my right is with the LORD, and my recompense with my God.”’
(Isaiah 49:4 ESV)

– As only part of the people believed, Isaiah says ‘…laboured in vain…’ (ESV), and this communicates how Christ yearns for all people to be saved, and not just some – much like His Father’s will (1 Timothy 2:3-4, 2 Peter 3:9).

Isaiah also shows us how Christ (Mesaiah) also looked forward to being at the right hand of G-d above, again.
