I recently had a man ask me if I it was true that I believed Christians were no longer under the Old Covenant. I could have gone into an explanation of the Old versus the New, but I took a different approach this time.
“Are you a full-blooded Jew?” I asked. “Are both of your parents Jewish and are all your grandparents Jewish?” “No,” he replied.
“Then you don’t have a choice. The Old Covenant was never extended to you. It’s the New or it’s none at all.”
I did then explain the truths and benefits of the New Covenant. But the simplicity of understanding that the Old never was available to us is illuminating.
