“What is the New Covenant in the Bible?” What are the changes made in the New Covenant? Most importantly, how does the New Covenant help you establish a closer relationship with God?

To answer these questions, it is imperative for us to understand the changes made in the New Covenant. We need to see the difference between the New Covenant and the Old Covenant.

The “New Covenant” was made possible through the life and sacrifice of our Master and Savior, Yahshua the Messiah or popularly known as Jesus Christ. The spiritual Israel, which is the Church or assembly of God, is under the New Covenant. This New Covenant brings better promises and a change in how we should have a deeper relationship with our Heavenly Father.

To better understand the New Covenant, you need to know what changes have been made when we transitioned from the Old Covenant. 

In this post, let me share the seven most significant changes made in the New Covenant.

Change no. 1: Removal of the sacrificial law in the New Covenant

One of the main features of the New Covenant is the abolition of the sacrificial rituals and ceremonies done by the physical nation of Israel. 

In the Old Covenant, Yahshua wasn’t sacrificed yet. So, as a temporary replacement, Israel had to kill animals and shed their blood as a symbol and reminder that there is a much better and greater sacrifice that will be done in the future.

The problem with sacrificing animals was that they are NOT enough to take away our sins. Notice what Hebrews 10:4 tells us:

“For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and goats could take away sins.”

The animal sacrificial system of the Old Covenant was never meant to last forever. They were temporary.

Change no. 2: Change of priesthood

Under the Old Covenant, the high priest enters the Most Holy Place of the tabernacle once every year during the Day of Atonement. The high priest offered a sacrifice before the mercy seat which represented the throne of God.

Today, under the New Covenant, the high priest is no longer a man, but a divine Being. That Being is no other than Yahshua.

Christ didn’t simply become the sacrifice for our sins, but He also filled the role of the high priest. 

Hebrews 7:28 tells us:

For the law appoints as high priests men who have weakness, but the word of the oath, which came after the law, APPOINTS the Son who has been perfected forever. 

Change no. 3: Removal of the physical temple

The temple in Jerusalem was destroyed in AD 70. This has essentially stopped the temple sacrifices and worship system that were made during the Old Covenant.

Christians today don’t need to perform the rituals associated with the physical tabernacle, temple, and Levitical priesthood.

Hebrews 9:9-10 clearly tells us:

It was symbolic for the present time in which both gifts and sacrifices are offered which cannot make him who performed the service perfect in regard to the conscience—concerned only with foods and drinks, various washings, and fleshly ordinances imposed until the time of reformation.

Basically, what these verses are saying is that physical rituals which include the food and drink offerings, ceremonial washings, and flesh ordinances, which include animal sacrifices, are only kept until the TIME OF REFORMATION.

This time of reformation was ushered in by our new High Priest, Yahshua.

Change no. 4: The availability of the Holy Spirit

In ancient times, the Holy Spirit was only given to a handful of people whom God chose to work with personally. It was only limited to a few of the servants of God.

The Holy Spirit is the transforming power of Yahweh. Without it, we are not able to fully follow God. This is the reason why the ancient Israelites were not able to fully change their stubborn hearts.

Through the life and death of Christ, the Holy Spirit has now been made available to those who truly seek God. 

On the day of Pentest, God’s Spirit was made available. The Holy Spirit enables Christians today to follow Him from the heart.

This leads us to the next point.

Change no. 5: A change of heart

Jeremiah 31:33 tells us:

But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says Yahweh: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 

Instead of the law being written in tablets of stones, the law would then be written on the hearts of men. This aims to change our hearts, to make them more obedient to the laws of God.

Change no. 6: Better promises

The Old Covenant’s promises and rewards were primarily directed at physical benefits. We read in Leviticus 26:3-13 and Deuteronomy 7:12-15; 28:1-14 how God will bless Israel for their obedience.

Today, in the New Covenant, because of Yahshua, eternal life is now offered to those who submit themselves to God. Though we have not lived perfectly, Christ’s sacrifice provided us an opportunity to gain eternal life.

Hebrews 9:15 talks about the eternal inheritance given to us in the New Covenant:

“And for this reason He is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.”

Change no. 7: Salvation is offered to non-Israelites

One of the best changes made in the New Covenant is that salvation is not only limited to the physical Israelites anymore, but it is now available to anyone, regardless of their ancestry, as long as they are willing to accept God’s will and purpose for them.

We read in Ephesians 2:11-13:

Therefore remember that you, once Gentiles in the flesh—who are called Uncircumcision by what is called the Circumcision made in the flesh by hands—that at that time you were WITHOUT Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off HAVE BEEN BROUGHT NEAR BY THE BLOOD OF CHRIST.

Galatians 3:29 also tells us that if we belong to Christ, we are Abraham’s seed, and this made us heirs according to the promise. 

Final words

These are the seven changes made in the New Covenant. As a summary, we now see how the New Covenant improved the Old Covenant.

Instead of sacrificing animals, Christ served as the ultimate sacrifice once and for all. 

Instead of the Levitical priesthood, we see Yahshua serving as the High Priest. 

Instead of the law written in tablets of stones, it is now written in our hearts. 

Instead of the physical temple, we have become a temple of God. 

Instead of overcoming sins by ourselves, we have the Holy Spirit as our helper. 

Instead of only the physical Israelites, all peoples from all nations are given the chance to receive salvation. Instead of condemnation, we now have the grace of God. 

Instead of just physical blessings, we have the promise of eternal life.

With this in mind, I hope you have a better understanding of what the New Covenant is, what is “new” about the New Covenant, and how the changes made in it incredibly signifies God’s love for us!
