The agreement or covenant between God and his people changed their lives. This group of people wandering in the desert became a new nation. They became God’s people. Through the rest of their history, the people looked back to the sprinkling with blood in order to understand who they were as a nation. Now there is a new agreement between God and us----his new people. We have a new relationship to him as adopted sons and daughters. The new covenant is sealed and made binding by the blood of Jesus. Whenever God’s new people celebrate the Eucharist they are calling to mind the new covenant of adoption in Jesus Christ’s blood.
STUDY QUESTIONS: (Limit response to one page per question). What was the purpose of the old covenant? What is the purpose of the new covenant? When establishing a new community what kind of covenant should be written?
