The New Covenant of Christ:

As we have studied so far, the New Covenant began when Jesus died on the cross.  The following scriptures were written to Christians after Jesus' death and resurrection:

"And to the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might win Jews; to those who are under the Law, as under the Law, though not being myself under the Law, that I might win those who are under the Law; to those who are without law, as without law, though not being without the law of God but under the law of Christ, that I might win those who are without law." 1 Corinthians 9:20-21 (NAS)

"Brethren, even if a man is caught in any trespass, you who are spiritual, restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness; each one looking to yourself, lest you too be tempted. Bear one another's burdens, and thus fulfill the law of Christ." Galatians 6:1-2 (NAS)

"For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death*." Romans 8:2 (NAS)

"...nevertheless knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the Law but through faith in Christ Jesus, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we may be justified by faith in Christ, and not by the works of the Law**; since by the works of the Law shall no flesh be justified." Galatians 2:16 (NAS)

"I do not nullify the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the Law**, then Christ died needlessly." Galatians 2:21 (NAS)

"Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law**, having become a curse for us-- for it is written, "Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree"  Galatians 3:13 (NAS)

"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)


 According to the scriptures above, Jews and non-Jews (Gentiles) are now under which law?

Law of Christ Law of Moses Not under Law

* The Law of Moses was also called the "law of sin and death."

** Paul is referring to the Law of Moses -- see Galatians 3:17.
