Definition of New Covenant

Does anyone have a succinct definition of the New Covenant? How about the Mosaic Covenant?


Go to and get Scott Hahns CD on “Covenants”.

Thank you. And its not that it is a bad suggestion, its just that I could use the information right now, like this hour. :slight_smile:

Disclaimer: this is me thinking on my feet.

The Mosaic Covenant is the Covenant between God and the nation of Israel. It’s based on the Law of the Torah, and God’s promise to be the God of Israel.

The New Covenant is the Covenant between God and the world. It’s based on the sacrifice of Jesus, and His Body and Blood, and God’s promise to grant eternal life.

Thanks Judechild,

Hm, do I cook a lot? Well, no, I don’t; why do you ask? :wink:
