"Therefore the Law has become our tutor to lead us to Christ, that we may be justified by faith. But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor." Galatians 3:24-25 (NAS)

The Old Covenant or Testament

As we have learned so far in this lesson...the Law of Moses, including the Ten Commandments was a covenant between God and the Jews (the children of Israel):

"Then the LORD said to Moses, "Write down these words, for in accordance with these words I have made a covenant with you and with Israel." So he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did not eat bread or drink water. And he wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant, the Ten Commandments." Exodus 34:27-28 (approximately 1450 B.C. -- NAS)

The New Covenant Promised by God

After giving the Law of Moses, God said he would establish a new covenant, unlike the Law of Moses:

"Behold, days are coming," declares the LORD, "when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah, not like the covenant which I made with their fathers in the day I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, although I was a husband to them," declares the LORD." Jeremiah 31:31-32 (written in about 600 B.C., approximately 850 years after the Law of Moses was given -- NAS)

Jesus Fulfilled the Law of Moses

"Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish, but to fulfill." Matthew 5:17 (NAS)
