Ten Key Theological Aspects of the New Covenant

Paul Lamey has a nice
post on the New Covenant, including the following ten key theological aspects of the New Covenant.

1. The NC is in fact “new” (Heb. 8:13)

2. The NC was promised by the prophets (Jer. 31:31–34; Ezek. 36:22–36)

3. The NC was instituted by Christ (Luke 22:20)

4. The NC was inaugurated at Pentecost (Acts 2:14–41)

5. The NC is participated in by the church in the present age (1 Cor. 11:23–34; 2 Cor. 3:1–18; Eph. 2:11–13)

6. The NC will be fulfilled in Israel in the Millennial Kingdom (Rom. 11:25–27)

7. The NC will be consummated in the eternal state (Rev. 21:1–4)

8. The NC is applied only to those who consciously know the Lord by faith (Jer. 31:34; cf. Heb. 8:11–12)

9. The NC ensures that every recipient of its promises possesses forgiveness of sins (Jer. 31:34)

10. The NC’s members cannot abandoned the faith in any respect (John 6:38–40, 10:27–30; 1 John 2:19)
