Jesus Institutes the New Covenant

International Sunday School June 2, 2019 Summer Quarter #1

Mark 14:17-25  And when it was evening, he came with the twelve.  (18)  And as they were reclining at table and eating, Jesus said, “Truly, I say to you, one of you will betray me, one who is eating with me.”  (19)  They began to be sorrowful and to say to him one after another, “Is it I?”  (20)  He said to them, “It is one of the twelve, one who is dipping bread into the dish with me.  (21)  For the Son of Man goes as it is written of him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been better for that man if he had not been born.”  (22)  And as they were eating, he took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to them, and said, “Take; this is my body.”  (23)  And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, and they all drank of it.  (24)  And he said to them, “This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many.  (25)  Truly, I say to you, I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.”

Hebrews 8:6-7  But as it is, Christ has obtained a ministry that is as much more excellent than the old as the covenant he mediates is better, since it is enacted on better promises.  (7)  For if that first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no occasion to look for a second.

Hebrews 8:10-12  For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my laws into their minds, and write them on their hearts, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.  (11)  And they shall not teach, each one his neighbor and each one his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest.  (12)  For I will be merciful toward their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more.”
