Jesus the New Covenant

When Jesus ministered to the sick, we do not find Him praying and asking God to heal. Since He is the fulfilment of the Covenant, He gave a word of command, a touch of His hands and the sick were healed. Since Jesus has fulfilled all the requirements of the Old Covenant, He Himself has become the personification of the benefits of the Covenant that God intended for His people. In fact the New Covenant is Jesus Himself. In the Lord's Supper He said that the cup represented His blood and the bread, His body (Lk. 22:19, 20).

What, then, is the New Covenant? The New Covenant is all the blessings and benefits of the Old Covenant that were unattainable by men but now brought freely to us at the cost of the blood of Jesus Christ. Not only do we receive the benefits and blessings of the Old Covenant but we also receive the very life and being of Jesus when we receive the New Covenant. Since the New Covenant is no longer a book of letters but a person - the person of Jesus Christ!
