I Promise, Part 7

The New Covenant
June 9, 2024 | By Tyler Carroll

Throughout this series, we’ve seen that people are much better at making promises than keeping them. Jesus, through His life, death, and resurrection, fulfilled all of the previous covenants between God and humanity and brought a new, final covenant to unite all creation with God.

We are much better at making promises than we are at keeping them.

Jeremiah 17:9
“The heart is more deceitful than all else, and is desperately sick; Who can understand it?”

Stephen Wellum, Kingdom and Covenant
“God chooses to reverse the disastrous effects of sin and usher in his saving reign in this world through the covenants. Following the loss of Eden, redemption is linked to the election of a people and by means of a promised human (Gen. 3:15), all of which is given greater definition through Noah and his family, Abraham and his seed, the nation of Israel, and uniquely David and his sons/kings. These people, uniquely tied to the nation of Israel…will be the means of blessing the nations…But…God’s saving reign is not realized through these people and covenant heads; it is only typified, foreshadowed, and anticipated, as God had planned from eternity. Ultimately, it awaits the coming of the great antitype of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Israel, and David and his sons.”

Isaiah 61
The Lord’s spirit is upon me as the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor, to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim freedom to the captives, to the prisoners, release, to proclaim a year of favor for the LORD and a day of vengeance for our God, to comfort all who mourn, to set out for the mourners of Zion, to give them turbans instead of ashes, joy’s oil instead of mourning, a glorious wrap instead of gloomy spirit. And they shall be called oaks of victory, God’s planting in which to glory. And they shall rebuild the ancient ruins, the desolate places of yore they shall raise up, and renew the ravaged towns, and the desolate places of times long past. And foreigners shall stand and tend your flocks and strangers by your farmers and keepers of your vineyards. As for you, the LORD’s priests you shall be called, our God’s ministrants it shall be said of you. The wealth of nations you shall enjoy and in their glory revel. Instead of the shame twice over and disgrace they shall exult in their lot. Therefore they shall possess their land twice over, everlasting joy shall be theirs. For I, the LORD, love justice, hate robbery and vice, and I will truly pay their wages, an everlasting pact I will seal with them. And their seed shall be known in the nations, and their offspring among the peoples. All who see them shall recognize that they are the seed the LORD has blessed. I shall greatly rejoice in the LORD, my very being exult in my God. For He has clothed me with garments of triumph, has wrapped me with victory’s cloak, as a bridegroom dons, priestlike, a turban and as a bride is adorned in fine clothes. For as the earth brings forth its growth and a garden makes its plants flourish, so shall the LORD make victory flourish and praise before all the nations.

Luke 4:14-20
Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the spirit. Word about him went out throughout the whole district. He taught in their synagogues, and gained a great reputation all around. He came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up. On the sabbath, as was his regular practice, he went into the synagogue and stood up to read. They gave him the scroll of the prophet Isaiah. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written: The Lord’s spirit is upon me as the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor, to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim freedom to the captives, to the prisoners, release, to proclaim a year of favor for the LORD. He rolled up the scroll, gave it to the attendant, and sat down. All eyes in the synagogue were fixed on him. “Today, he began, this scripture is fulfilled in your own hearing.”

John 11:47-50
So the chief priests and the Pharisees called an assembly. What are we going to do? They asked? If we let him go on like this, everyone is going to believe in him! Then the Romans will come and take away our holy place, and our nation. But one of them, Caiaphas, the high priest that year, addressed them. “You know nothing at all!” He said, “You haven’t worked it out! This is what’s best for you: let one man die for the people, rather than the whole nation being wiped out.”

John 11:51-53
He didn’t say this of his own accord. Since he was high priest that year, it was a prophecy. It meant that Jesus would die for the nation; and not only for the nation, but to gather into one the scattered children of God. So from that day on they plotted how to kill Jesus.

Luke 24:44-47
Then he said to them, This is what I was talking to you about when I was still with you. Everything written about me in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and the Psalms, had to be fulfilled…And this is what was written: The messiah must suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and in his name repentance, for the forgiveness of sins, must be announced to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem.

Galatians 2:20
I have been crucified with the Messiah. I am, however, alive–but it isn’t me any longer; it’s the Messiah who lives in me. And the life I do still live in the flesh, I live within the faithfulness of the son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Galatians 3:26-29
For you are all children of God, through faith, in the Messiah Jesus. You see, every one of you who has been baptized into the Messiah has put on the Messiah. There is no longer Jew or Greek; there is no longer slave or free; there is no ‘male and female’; you are all one in the Messiah, Jesus. And, if you belong to the Messiah, you are part of Abraham’s family. You stand to inherit the promise.
