The Old and The New

What is the difference between the Old Covenant and the New? The Old was a contract between God and Israel. The New is God’s promise to us. Galatians ‪3:21-23 highlights 3 other differences: The Old could not make us righteous, in the New we receive the gift of righteousness. The Old required our participation, the New is a gift. The Old could not impart life, but the New Covenant is a ministry of life. Once we turn to Jesus by faith, we are released from the Law and step into the New Covenant and it’s better promises.
