A New Covenant

In Jeremiah, God speaks to the remnant faithful of Israel about the time coming when he will make a new covenant with them. What is this new covenant? It is clear that it is alluding to the new covenant in Jesus Christ. Some however, it isn’t clear to everyone what is meant by “new.” A bad conclusion is that God is doing something new. Obviously, the method of sending Christ is new, a new way to connect to Israel, but it wasn’t completely new or all together something else. It is still connected to what he has been doing all along. Christ has been foreshadowed all throughout the Old Testament.
