11 Remember therefore that once ye, the Gentiles in flesh, who are called uncircumcision by that which is called circumcision (in flesh, made by hands),
12 that ye were at that time independent of Christ, alienated from the citizenship of Israel, and alien of the covenants of the promise, having no hope and godless in the world.
13 But now in Christ Jesus ye, being formerly far off, became near in the blood of the Christ.
16 For where a covenant is, a necessity is to present the death of the man who made the covenant.
17 For a covenant is effective with the dead, since it is never enforced while the man who made the covenant lives.
18 Whereupon neither has the first been dedicated without blood.
19 For of every commandment according to law that was spoken by Moses to all the people, after taking the blood of the calves and goats, with water and scarlet wool and hyssop, he sprinkled both the book itself and all the people,
20 saying, This is the blood of the covenant that God made for you.
17 So then if any man is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old things have passed away, behold, all things have become new.
18 And all things are from God who reconciled us to himself through Jesus Christ, and who gave to us the ministry of reconciliation.
19 How that God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself, not imputing to them their trespasses, and having committed to us the word of reconciliation.
20 We are therefore, ambassadors on behalf of Christ, as though God were calling through us. We plead on behalf of Christ, be ye reconciled to God.
21 For the man who knew no sin was made sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in him.
4 And we have such confidence toward God through Christ,
5 not that we are sufficient of ourselves to reckon anything as from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God,
6 who also made us qualified helpers of a new covenant, not of a document, but of a spirit, for the document kills but the spirit makes alive.
31 Behold, the days come, says LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah,
32 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, because they did not continue in my covenant, and I disregarded (LXX/NT) them, says LORD
33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says LORD: I will give my laws (LXX/NT) in their inward parts, and I will write them (LXX/NT) in their hearts. And I will be their God, and th
34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know LORD, for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says LORD. For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will
how much more the blood of Christ, who, through the eternal Spirit, offered himself unblemished to God, will cleanse your conscience from dead works in order to serve a living God?
And because of this he is mediator of a new covenant, so that a death having occurred for the redemption of the transgressions against the first covenant, those who are called might take the promise of the eternal inheritance.
1 For the law having a shadow of the good things that are coming, not the same substance of the events, with the same sacrifices that are offered continually each year, they are never able to fully perfect those who are approaching.
2 Otherwise would they not have ceased being offered, because of those who worship, once having been cleansed, to have no further conscience of sins?
3 But in them is a reminder of sins each year.
4 For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.
In this is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son, an atonement for our sins.
And having taken the cup, having expressed thanks, he gave to them, saying, All ye drink of it,
for this is my blood of the new covenant, which is shed on behalf of many for remission of sins.
In saying, New, he has made the first old. And what is becoming old and obsolete is near disappearance.
By so much, Jesus has become the surety of a better covenant.
Likewise also the cup after dining, saying, This cup is the new covenant in my blood being shed for you.
But now he has obtained a superior ministry, by so much as he is also the mediator of a superior covenant, which has been enacted upon superior promises.
For if that first one was faultless, no place would have been sought for a second.
