A Better Covenant

Hebrews 8:6 NLT

But our High Priest [Jesus Christ] has been given a ministry that is far superior to the ministry of those who serve under the old laws, for he is the one who guarantees for us a better covenant with God, based on better promises.

Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ accomplished in the New Covenant what the Old Covenant was not adequate to do. The Old Covenant proved that sin was more powerful than the law. As soon as the law in the Old Covenant said, "Thou shalt not”, mankind could not resist the temptation and the power of sin. Therefore, man ultimately broke the Covenant. Sin overpowered mankind, but Jesus overpowered sin. The law's purpose was to expose sin (Old Covenant). Jesus purpose was to defeat sin (New Covenant).
