Christian covenant by faith and the Jewish Law

“Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made.  He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.”

“And this I say that the covenant that was confirmed of God before in Christ – the Law which was 430 years after, cannot disannul – that it should make the promise of none effect.”

“For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise.”

“Wherefore then serveth the law ?”

“It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator …….”

“Is the law then against the promises of God ?”

“God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law.”

“But the Scripture hath concluded all under sin that the  promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.”

“But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should which should afterwards be revealed.”

“Wherefore, the law was our school master to bring us unto Christ that we might be justified by faith.”

“But after faith is come, we are no longer under a school master. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Jesus Christ.”

“For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.”

“… and if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the promise.”

The personal icon photograph shows God's creation, the world. It reminds us that God is the Creator of all - the almighty, the all knowing and all present - the one who is most important of all. The one to whom we owe all, and the one to whom we will answer for all. The site's header image of the Bible [King James Authorised Version], a map, a light and a compass represent to us that God's word in the Bible is our spiritual map, illumination and guide through this life. Those who obey his teaching will know his presence and power - Gospel of John, chapter 14, verse 23
