Overview

Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled....' Matthew 5:17

Did you know that God promised His new covenant to the House of Israel? Does this exclude Gentile Christians? Who are His people Israel? Is the new covenant a new set of laws to replace the old?

You may or may not know that the new covenant is not based on laws or documents but on a person. The new covenant is about relationships-a new relationship to justice, to God's law, and even to God Himself. It is expressed in the life and words of Jesus Christ. But how are we to interpret His life and words? What is the freedom found in the new covenant relationship? Is it freedom to live any way we want? Are there commands given in the new covenant that are specific to that covenant?

Christians often stumble when it comes to understanding the work of God's grace from the Old Testament through the New. But an understanding of the covenant God made through the person of Jesus Christ is vital to knowing how to walk in the Spirit every day. Brown reveals the new covenant in a way that is scholarly but accessible, seasoned with salt as well as grace. The Covenant of Freedom illuminates the covenant narrative from Genesis to Revelation and what lies at the heart of Christianity, the promise of God.
