Summary of today’s video devotional: The New Covenant is the subject of Hebrews 8, and continues the revelation that Christ is our High Priest, and “is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens” (8:1). As our High Priest, Christ “is the mediator of a better [stronger] covenant, which was established upon better [stronger] promises” (8:6).
A covenant is only good when both parties keep their vows. The prophet Jeremiah, quoted in Hebrews 8:8-11, observed how the children of Israel had broken covenant with God. Like a wife who betrays her vows and breaks her marriage covenant, Israel had failed to keep her covenant with God. Knowing Christ has established a “Covenant” by His blood, we are confident He is our High Priest and Mediator, and sits “on the right hand of the throne.”
