Join our small group fellowship as we study this lesson on the Old and New Testament covenants.

Bible Study Lesson

In this Bible study lesson we will see:

  • How a covenant is a contract between two parties.
  • If either party dishonors the covenant it gives the other party the right to impose negative consequences.
  • How the two parties in the Old Testament were God and Israel.
  • How the Old Testament covenant had a weakness—it was law based.
  • How Israel constantly dishonored the covenant, and as a result, reaped negative consequences.
  • Why God told Jeremiah that a superior covenant would be forthcoming.
  • How the new covenant would not be with national Israel, but with spiritual Israel.
  • How the New Testament covenant isn't law based, but is blood based.
  • How the two parties in the new covenant are not God and Israel, but are God and Christ, which means the new covenant will never be dishonored. This means once a person comes under the new covenant he can never lose his salvation due to bad behavior.
  • How nonbelievers come under the Old Testament law based judgmental covenant, while believers are under the New Testament blood based covenant.
  • We will see why Jesus is referred to as a surety of a better covenant (Hebrews 7:22).

NOTE: I recommend listening to the lessons on the tabernacle as I view this series as being one of the most valuable teachings in the Bible. The tabernacle lessons gives us God's formula (not man's) for being justified, sanctified (maturing as a Christian), having an effective prayer life, having an appetite for the Word of God, and for being a positive witness for Christ.

Comments Are In:

Rev. Dr. Dean, Pastor- If you are looking for a man with a fresh perspective to lead your church to another level, consider inviting Jack to come in and lead a series of teaching sessions. Our church thoroughly enjoyed the time. He is competent in handling the scriptures, and has great insight about Biblical truths that are often neglected or simply not taught by design in so many of our churches today. You will not be disappointed if you embark on such a course.

Connie - I can't put the book Under the Cloud down!

David (a Sunday School teacher for Young Marrieds) - It is a great teaching resource that I know is reliable. There are specific topics that I can easily access for use in my class like "The Rock" and I especially liked the section on "Educating the Flesh."

Mary Anne - Under the Cloud is not just another man's opinion, it is all based on Scripture.

Antoinette (who has already purchased over 30 books) - As I give the book to friends and clients, I say to them "put down all the other books you are reading and read this one! I promise you Under the Cloud will change your life."

Julie - I started reading Under the Cloud yesterday and felt enveloped in love, as well as wonderful memories of being taught amazing and powerful truths through two incredible servants of God. Thank You!

Name withheld by us - I will send my husband and son off to the Middle East in Sept. for their second deployment with a copy of your book. (Likely to Afghanistan).

Karen - I am really enjoying your book. It sure is one that I will go back to. I have already marked it up.

John & Jane - We are both enjoying your book so much. Please bring us 10 more signed copies on Thursday.

Rob - My only criticism of the book is that I eventually ran out of pages.

Sally - Your book is fantastic! I just wish I had read it 20 years ago. It would have answered a lot of my questions.

Wayne - I loved the section on "Rigged Fights."
