Introduction

\u201cThis is the covenant that I will make with them
a\ue001ter those days, says the Lord: I will put my laws in
their hearts, and I will write them on their minds\u201d
(Hebrews 10:16, New Revised Standard Version).

Introduction

oes the New Covenant negate God\u2019s law and do away with
any need to obey the Ten Commandments and other laws o\ue004 God?
The belie\ue004 that it does has long been a popular teaching in traditional
Christianity. We\u2019ll thoroughly examine this question in this booklet.

Even more important, we\u2019ll address the real purpose o\ue004 God\u2019s bib- lical covenants\u2014more than one\u2014and their vital role in the Creator\u2019s overall plan \ue004or mankind. It\u2019s highly important that we understand their true meaning.

How many people even know that the structure o\ue004 the Bible is
organized around a series o\ue004 divine covenants\u2014what we might call
contracts or agreements\u2014that reveal and describe the relationship
God would like to have with every human being?

These covenants reveal God\u2019s promises. They also de\ue000ne the con- ditions that every person must meet to receive the blessings o\ue004 those promises. God\u2019s covenants are the \ue004oundation o\ue004 His divine plan to properly shape the way all people should think and behave.

God has a speci\ue000c goal in mind. The \ue000nal result o\ue004 His plan is a divine \ue004amily o\ue004 sons and daughters who have developed the same righteouscharacter that was evident in Jesus Christ when He was with mankind as a human being.

That character can be created only through an interactive process\ue002
