The new covenant is first given in the book of Jeremiah, and Jeremiah 31 was the lectionary reading for this past Sunday. The new covenant moves us from law to grace, from religion, to divine faithfulness. But most of us are still trying to perform our way into the kingdom.
Scripture: Jere. 31:31-34 / II Cor. 4:7-18. See also East and West – Cageless Birds
