On Shavuot (Pentecost), the first Believers, who were nearly all Jewish, recognized that the New Covenant had begun, but they didn’t immediately recognize that non-Jews should be part of God’s people or His New Covenant blessings.
The word brit (covenant) carries a connotation of the shedding of blood. This is nothing unusual: even from the earliest of times, covenant agreements were often ratified by animal sacrifice or an exchange of blood.
It relates and interprets the new covenant, represented in the life and death of Jesus, between God and the followers of the Christ. In this audio recording of the New Testament, listeners will enter the story of Jesus, his church, and his return.
