Pastor Rich continued our study of Hebrews with “Covenant 2.0”. The new covenant that Jesus provided is better by far because it was enacted on better promises. There were blessings and curses promised by following or disobeying the Old Testament law. But it has been proven that we cannot follow the law on our own. The new covenant with Jesus brings an inward desire to obey, personal relationship, permanent forgiveness and eternity with Him.
