To begin to share with you the story of Jesus, we must first understand WHY God gave His Son as a sacrifice for mankind's sins. The purpose of this most compassionate act of unconditional Love was to establish a New Covenant with mankind who had some horrible choices and violated the Old Covenant. God chose to upgrade the Covenant between He and mankind. But, He could not without an unimaginable cost.
That being shared ... Let us begin the New Covenant Bible verse study by asking ... What is a "COVENANT"? A Covenant is an agreement between two parties which both agree not to violate. In this Jesus New Covenant Bible case, the agreement was between God and His Chosen people (Israel). The Old Covenant was based on LAW and was given to the people by God, through Moses. The Old Testament is based on this Old Covenant and the New Testament represents the New Covenant based on God's Grace.
Our Heavenly Father told us in the Bible that we will KNOW that He is God because He tells us things that will happen before they occur. He is the God of
The Bible also says
that God reveals His plan to the prophets and these prophets share it with His chosen people.
This brings up a
question to mind and heart as we sojourn along in our Jesus New Covenant Bible voyage ... Did our Father
prophesy, through His servants the prophets, of the upcoming of this NEW COVENANT?
The answer is ... ABSOLUTELY!
He did so in the Jesus New Covenant Bible Scripture and in particular in the New Covenant Bible verse message as a whole ... After looking at what His earthly children had done for nearly 2000 years, God made this statement ...
And I took my staff, even Beauty,
and cut it asunder, that I might break my COVENANT which I had made
with all the people. And it was broken in that day: and so the poor of
the flock that waited upon me knew that it was the word of the LORD.
And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not,
forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver.
And the LORD said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price
that I was prised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver,
and cast them to the potter in the house of the LORD. Then I cut
asunder mine other staff, even Bands, that I might break the
brotherhood between Judah and Israel.
In the New Covenant Bible verse, God tells us that He will break His
Old COVENANT (Old Testament) and even prophesied the timing that the
Old COVENANT would end and the New COVENANT would begin. He said that
at the time of the change of the COVENANTS the Jewish people would
consider His worth as ... 30 pieces of silver. (The amount the Jewish
Religious leaders paid Judas to betray Jesus)
God prophesied through these two prophets, hundreds of years before the Jesus New Covenant Bible promise happened. God KNEW the people would trade Him up and even told the exact amount that they would trade Him up for. The TRUTH that He had accomplished His NEW COVENANT is confirmed in the New Covenant Bible verse below:
But, now hath He obtained a more
excellent ministry, by how much also He (Jesus) is the mediator of a better
COVENANT, which was established upon better promises. For if that
first COVENANT had been faultless, then should no place have been
sought for the second. For finding fault with them, He saith, Behold,
the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new COVENANT with
the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.
God said that He looked down on
Earth and He could not find one soul that had done good. NO, not one.
The LORD looked down from Heaven upon the children of men,
to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are
all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none
that doeth good, no, not one.
(Did you know that Psalm 14 and Psalm 53 say
virtually the same words? Just a lil interesting fact for ya.)
Sooooooo, God saw that His children
were all doomed to Hell. In order to save His children, He had to
establish a NEW BLOOD COVENANT worthy of cleansing the
sins of the people ... To be able to activate this Jesus New Covenant Bible gift, God knew that He would have to sacrifice His own Son and chose to do so to save His lost children. Therefore, we have the New Covenant Bible verse prophecy as a witness.
You see ... In the days of Moses, the blood of
animals was sprinkled on
the people to establish the Old COVENANT. (Kinda like a blood pact
between friends) Now, in the New COVENANT, it is the Blood of Jesus
that established the New COVENANT.
For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you
upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the
blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.
Let's take a short Jesus New Covenant Bible field trip. Think of it this way ... The Old
COVENANT is kinda like a bride who married a man and obeyed out of fear
and obligation, but lacked a foundation of Love ... The Marriage failed just as many marriages on
earth do now for the same reasons. The result is Divorce ... A marriage based on fear and
obligation is as nothing compared to one based on LOVE. The marriages with a foundation of LOVE can overcome all trials and tribulations the world will throw at em. It is ETERNAL.
In this RENEWED marriage Covenant (The New Covenant Bible Verse Hope) ... It is
different in that the bride would CHOOSE to obey their husband because
they loved Him. The foundation is to be based on LOVE and FAITH because of what He has done for them. He
sacrificed His life so that those that He loved might LIVE. This marriage
will prove to be worthy and ETERNAL. They will make it through the
trials and tribulations that the world will throw at em cuz ... They
LOVE and BELIEVE in Him. That brings us to today with the CHOICE of Faith and Love
... Is not our Father AWESOME?
But now hath He obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also
He (Jesus) is the mediator of a better COVENANT, which was established
upon better promises.
How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal
Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from
dead works to serve the living God? And for this cause He is the
mediator of the New Testament, that by means of death, for the
redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament,
they which are called might receive the promise of eternal
inheritance. For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be
the death of the testator.
And to Jesus the mediator of the new COVENANT, and to the blood of
sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. See that ye
refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him
that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away
from him that speaketh from heaven ...
This brings us to the method that our loving Father chose to bring this Jesus New Covenant into existence. Prepare the way for the New Covenant. This is the New Covenant Bible story of the conception of John the Baptist. The fiery prophet that came to prepare the way for JESUS who brings in the New Covenant Bible verse promise very soon thereafter.
In the days, just prior to the birth of Jesus, when
Herod was the king of Judea, there was a priest named Zacharias. His
wife's name was Elisabeth. They were godly people, walking in the laws
of the Lord. They prayed to have children but Elisabeth was barren and
they were both elderly, the time of life for bearing a child had come
One day Zacharias was burning incense in the Lord's
Temple, and the congregation was praying outside
according to their customs, when an Angel of the Lord came to
Zacharias. When he saw the Angel, he was scared, but the Angel said to
him, Don't be afraid Zacharias. Your prayer has been heard. Elisabeth
will bear you a son and you will name him John.
Many people will rejoice about his birth. He’ll be
special in the Lord's eyes and he won’t drink wine or strong drink.
He'll be filled with the Holy Ghost from the time he’s conceived.
He'll turn many of the children of Israel to the Lord their God. And
God will lead him with the spirit and power of Elijah to turn the
heart’s of fathers to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom
of the righteous. He'll prepare people for the coming of the Lord.
Zacharias doubted out loud, How can this be true?
I'm an old man, and my wife, she’s old too. (In the book of Genesis,
Abraham and Sarah had the same thing happen and in that case, it was
Sarah that doubted ...
Sarah has a son.)
The Angel said, I am Gabriel, who stands in the presence of God and I
was sent to tell you all this, but because you doubted, you won’t be
able to speak until the day that this comes true because you didn't
believe my Words. These things will come true in their own time.
The people outside were surprised that Zacharias was
taking so long inside the Temple and when he came out, he couldn't
speak to them. They thought that he had a vision because he gestured
to them but kept silent.
When the days of Zacharias' service were finished,
he went to his own house and soon after, Elisabeth conceived and hid
herself five months. She said, The Lord has been kind to me and has
taken away my shame of being childless.
It is important to remember as we travel into the Jesus New Covenant Bible passages that the conception of John the Baptist was of man and woman. Now this conception
that we will look into is quite a bit
different. It is the conception of Jesus. The purpose of this birth is to bring in the New Covenant Bible verse miracle.
Matthew, Chapter 1
The beginning of
Matthew 1:1-17 tells the
genealogy of Jesus Christ if you would like to study it. Matthew’s
account of Jesus lineage goes back to Abraham. Luke gives his account
going all the way back to Adam in
Luke 3:23-38. These men share with us the bloodline
of Jesus. Most people today don’t know their great great grandfather’s
name, so you can understand that the record we have in the Bible is
very precious. It's kinda like looking up Jesus' family tree.
Looking back through Jesus’ bloodline, several
prophecies are fulfilled by His birth. He was of the seed of Abraham (Genesis
12:3), the seed of Isaac (Genesis
17:19), and the seed of Jacob
24:17). He was also from the
tribe of Judah (Genesis
49:10), and heir to the
throne of David (Isaiah
2 Samuel 7:12-16).
Our Jesus New Covenant Bible journey on the New Covenant Bible verse shares with us that in Biblical times, an Israelite family and its descendants were referred to as a tribe, and sometimes a house. In the city of Nazareth
in Galilee there was a man named Joseph from the house of David and
the tribe of Judah who was engaged to a woman named Mary.
Mary was related to Elisabeth. This makes John the
Baptist and Jesus ... Cousins. They were born six months apart. So
when Elisabeth was in her sixth month of pregnancy, with John the
Baptist ... The Angel Gabriel was sent to Mary and he said, Rejoice,
you who are very special. The Lord is with you. You are blessed among
When Mary saw him she was confused about what this
meant. Gabriel said, Don't be afraid Mary, you have found favor with
God and you shall conceive and bear a son and will name Him JESUS. He
will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest and the Lord
God will give Him the throne of His father David. He will reign over
the house of Jacob for ever and His Kingdom will have no end.
Mary said to the Angel, How can this be, seeing I
have never been with a man? And the Angel said to her, The Holy Ghost
will come upon you and the power of the Highest will overshadow you.
That holy thing which will be born of you will be called the
Son of God.
Elisabeth has also conceived a son in her old age and
this is the sixth month with her, who was barren. For with God nothing
shall be impossible. And Mary said, I am the handmaid of the Lord. Let
it happen to me as you have said. And with that, the Angel left.
Now, when Joseph was told by Mary the story of the
Angel visit and that she was pregnant with God's child, as you can
imagine, it was a bit much to swallow for him. However, being a
righteous man, he didn't want to cause a scandal, so he thought it was
wise to keep Mary hidden away secretly. But while he thought about it,
the Angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, Joseph, son
of David, don't be afraid to take Mary for your wife.
She has conceived a son of the Holy Ghost. She'll give birth to a son and you
will name Him JESUS (Savior), because He'll save His people from their
sins. All this was done, so that it would be fulfilled, which was
spoken of the Lord by the prophet (Isaiah
saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a
son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel, which being interpreted
is, GOD WITH US. Joseph woke up and did what the Angel told him and
took Mary to be his wife.
Mary went to visit Elisabeth after Gabriel’s visit.
When Elisabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the baby inside her leaped
in her womb and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost. Happily she
said, Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your
womb. How did it come about that the mother of my Lord should come and
visit me? As soon as the voice of your greeting touched my ears, the
baby inside me leaped in my womb for joy. And blessed are you for
believing, because the things that the Lord told you will come true.
Mary said to Elisabeth, My soul praises the Lord and
my spirit rejoices in God my Savior. He has considered my modest life.
From this time forward, all generations will call me blessed. He that
is mighty has done great things to me and holy is His name. His mercy
is on them that fear Him from generation to generation.
He has shown strength with His arm, He has confused the proud in the imagination of
their hearts. He taken the mighty down from their thrones and lifted
up those who are lowly. He has filled the hungry with good things, and
the rich, He has sent away empty. He has helped His servant Israel in
remembrance of His mercy as He spoke to our fathers, to Abraham, and
to his seed for ever.
Mary stayed with Elisabeth for about three months
and then returned to her own house. When it was time for Elisabeth to
deliver, she gave birth to a son. Her neighbors and her cousins heard
how the Lord had mercy on her by allowing her to give birth at such a
late age and they rejoiced with her. On the eighth day, when they were
fulfilling the Jewish customs for a newborn son, the men there named
the child Zacharias after his Dad.
But, because Zacharias still could not speak, Elisabeth said, No, he’ll be called John. And they said to
her, But there isn't anyone in your family with the name of John. They
made signs to Zacaharias asking what he wanted to name the child.
Zacharias asked for a writing table and wrote, His name is John.
Immediately Zacharias could speak again and he praised God.
Tell me that this Jesus New Covenant Bible story isn't completely exhilarating. The neighbors were all afraid then and people
gossiped about it throughout all the hill country of Judea. Everyone
who heard rumors about it wondered what kind of child this would turn
out to be. And the hand of the Lord was with the child.
Zacharias prophesied, saying, Blessed be the Lord
God of Israel. He has visited and saved His people. He has sent a
messenger of salvation for us in the house of his servant David, as He
spoke in the Words of His holy prophets which have been since the
world began, that we will be saved from our enemies and from the hand
of all that hate us. To keep the promise that He made to our father
Abraham, that He would pass on to us, that we, being delivered out of
the hand of our enemies might serve Him without fear, in holiness and
righteousness all the days of our life.
And you child, will be called the prophet of the
Highest because you will tell about Him and prepare people for His
coming. You will tell the people about salvation by the forgiveness of
their sins by the tender mercy of our God, by which the new dawn from
Heaven has visited us to give light to those who sit in darkness and
in the shadow of death, to guide us to the way of peace.
The child grew, and became strong in spirit and
lived in the deserts until the day he showed up in Israel. Can you
imagine how hard it was for those who were chosen to BELIEVE? It's
still hard today. We must just continue in faith.
This Jesus New Covenant Bible story is so very important. It requires for you to understand completely, so take your time absorbing it. We have just begun our Jesus New Covenant Bible adventure seeking to totally comprehend this SON-derful gift shared within the New Covenant Bible verse message. The best is yet to come.
