The Bible is Wrong: Jesus did not establish a “New Covenant”.

Some Christians excuse the murders, massacres, and mayhem of the Old Testament by saying that because of Jesus, God made a new covenant with his people.

The Truth Is

The words of Jesus make it pretty clear that there is no new covenant.


Jesus Jesus came to uphold the law.

Matthew 5:17-20

Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven:
but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Jesus came not to send peace on earth but mayhem and he totally abhors family values.

Matthew 10:34 – 10:37

Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.

 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.

He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

Jesus never saw himself as divine. His mission was to get his fellow Jews to obey God so that they could escape hellfire and brimstone.He knew the Scriptures thoroughly, even to words and verb tenses.

He believed the Old Testament was historical fact. He makes numerous references to the Old Testament and obviously thinks everything in the Old Testament is still in effect.

This is very clear. Here are some of His references to the Old Testament “facts”:

  • Luke 11:51-Abel was a real individual
  • Matthew 24:37-39-Noah and the flood (Luke 17:26, 27)
  • John 8:56-58-Abraham
  • John 3:14 Reference to Moses
  • Matthew 10:15; 11:23, 24 (Luke 10:12)-Sodom and Gomorrah
  • Luke 17:28-32-Lot (and wife!)
  • Matthew 8:11-Isaac and Jacob (Luke 13:28)
  • John 6:31, 49, 58-Manna
  • John 3:14-Serpent
  • Matthew 12:39-41-Jonah (vs. 42-Sheba)
  • Matthew 24:15-Daniel and Isaiah
  • He believed the books were written by the men whose names they bear:
    • Moses wrote the Pentateuch (Torah): Matthew 19:7, 8; Mark 7:10, 12:26 (Book of Moses-the Torah); Luke 5:14; 16:29,31; 24:27, 44 (Christs Canon); John 1:17; 5:45, 46; 7:19; (The Law [Torah] was given by Moses; Grace and Truth came by Jesus Christ.)5
    • Isaiah wrote both Isaiahs: Mark 7:6-13; John 12:37-41
    • Jonah wrote Jonah: Matthew 12:39-41
    • Daniel wrote Daniel: Matthew 24:15
  • He believed the Old Testament was spoken by God Himself, or written by the Holy Spirits inspiration, even though the pen was held by men: Matthew 19:4, 5; 22:31, 32, 43; Mark 12:26; Luke 20:37.
  • He recognized the commandments And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments . Matt 19:17
  • He believed Scripture was more powerful than His miracles: Luke 16:29, 31
  • He confirmed the truth of “the law”. And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail. Luke 16:17
  • He quoted it in overthrowing Satan! The O.T. Scriptures were the arbiter in every dispute: Matthew 4; Luke 16:29, 31.
  • He quoted Scripture as the basis for his own teaching. His ethics were the same as what we find already written in Scripture: Matthew 7:12; 19:18, 19; 22:40; Mark 7:9, 13; 10:19; 12:24, 29-31; Luke 18:20.
  • He warned against replacing it with something else, or adding or subtracting from it. The Jewish leaders in His day had added to it with their Oral Traditions: Matthew 5:17; 15:1-9; 22:29; (cf. 5:43, 44); Mark. 7:1-12. (Destroying faith in the Bible as Gods Word will open the door today to a new Tradition.)
  • He will judge all men in the last day, as Messiah and King, on the basis of His infallible Word committed to writing by fallible men, guided by the infallible Holy Spirit: Matthew 25:31; John 5:22, 27; 12:48; Romans 2:16.
  • He made provision for the New Testament (Brit Hadashah) by sending the Holy Spirit (the Ruach HaKodesh). We must note that He Himself never wrote one word of Scripture although He is the Word of God Himself (the living Torah in flesh and blood, see John, chapter 1). He committed the task of all writing of the Word of God to fallible men-guided by the infallible Holy Spirit. The apostles words had the same authority as Christs: Matthew 10:14, 15; Luke 10:16; John 13:20; 14:22; 15:26, 27; 16:12-14.
  • He reviled men for their ignorance of the OT: Matthew 22:29; Mark 12:24.
  • Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law? Why go ye about to kill me? John 17:19
  • All of His life He did things because they were written-as if God had directly commanded. He fulfilled Old Testament prophecies about Himself. The passages are found all over the Old Testament. We cite here only a very few quoted in the New Testament: Matthew 11:10; 26:24, 53-56; Mark 9:12, 13; Luke 4:17-21; 18:31-33; 22:37; 24:44-47.

He Himself is the Word of God. All the words from His lips were the Word of God. (John 3:34)

The above leaves no room but to conclude that our Lord Jesus Christ considered the canon of Scripture as Gods Word, written by the hand of men.

All these references proving that Jesus saw himself as a spokesman for God and Judaism were provided by none other than the most evangelical organization in the USA, the folks at Answers In Genesis.

It is obvious that in Jesus’ own mind, there was no new covenant. He totally supports all of the Old Testament.

    In my study I have come to a very similar conclusion.

    The real guy, Jesus, the guy that walked the earth in the first century. What did he actually teach? What could he have taught?

    Could he have preached the basis of a new trinitarian religion where he is a man-god?
    Of course the voice of gospel of John would have us believe that.

    But the reality…Jesus could not have taught against the Torah or the writings or the prophets…it doesnt matter what signs or wonders he may have done. What prophecies he may have said. If any person comes proclaiming a God your fathers have not known it is a test. They are not be followed no matter what.
    By definition he could not have “changed or added or removed or expanded or anything” or he would be condemned by the self same Torah and prophets.

    It is clear to me that Jesus taught a purist return to Torah and God in Truth. Not embracing ritual to the exclusion of righteousness. Not trying to ritually fulfill the law while at the same time exploiting the poor. The only things he could have been against were proto-mishnah/oral torah/2nd temple traditions that were sometimes treated as written Torah even to the violation of written moral torah.

    We know Paul wrote first and we know the “gospels” are pseudo eyewitness accounts that deliver a theological position per the community they came from. So we can dig into Mark and start tossing out all the garbage that is obviously in conflict with torah/prophets and try to mine the nuggets of truth that are not really new revelation but pointings back to Torah and prophets. There may very well be legit sayings captured in Mark that were truly on jesus lips.

    But at the end of it all…you realize. We dont need the new testament. We dont need Paul or anyone else.
    They have no ability regardless of the quality or quantity of their content to undo/modify/change the torah
    Nothing they could have said that would be legit can conflict with Torah and prophets. So just go to the Torah and the prophets which again points to Torah and knowing God rightly and truly in His way.

    And I dont mean resorting to fanciful theologies like the trinity to reconcile the incompatible texts of the new testament with the Torah and prophets.
    How about we just stop trying to reconcile incompatible texts that trample on the Torah and explain to us why it’s ok. How about dat?

    If people read the Torah and writings and prophets and dont try to impose a new testament worldview it all speaks for it self. No it’s not all magically perfect and that is totally ok. Its authors are humans but they were passing on real truth from the real living God YHWH.

    Look at Amos. What a guy. We KNOW he wrote Amos. Not some theological edifice manufactured by a community of foreigners purporting to be “Amos”. No it was written by perhaps the most authentic and believable guy.
    Amos literally invented written prophecy…reluctantly Isaiah and Hosea and all the rest used Amos as their model.
    He was a sycamore fig farmer and shepherd. He had no desire to do anything else…no desire to wage war against idolatry in the land of YHWH. But then the voice of YHWH came to him and he was compelled to speak.
    He lived in the north of the southern kingdom and travelled to the south of the northern kingdom over the border to prophesy at Bethel who had syncretized Yhwh worship with Asherah and Ba’al. After he was banned by the northern kingdom presiding priest he had no choice but to write! He could no longer speak, but he could write.
    And so he did. In a single step he originated written prophecy

    This guy..Amos. I find him incredibly trustworthy. Could the smoothest modern trinitarian theologian convince Amos that the trinity is the God of Amos’s father?

    No more mixture. No more theological edifices of innovation. Strip it all away

    The entire second temple period with hellenization and selucid and Roman lapdogging has corrupted the entire period. Even Herods usurpation of the second temple to turn it into a gaudy abomination. The whole period was rotten in so many ways.
    So I have found that going back further and simply tossing out the future innovations bring amazing clarity

  2. Ken Morgan says:

    How true

  3. Brandon Gray says:

    God says he will make a new covenant in the Old Testament.

  4. Mike says:

    In the KJV, it says new testament, not new covenant like other versions.

  5. Coach Mike says:

    Matthew 26:28, In some of Jesus’ last words to His disciples, as he celebrates the Passover, He instates a NEW COVENANT, sealing it by His own blood.

    • TruthSayer says:

      OMG – so the use of the words “new covenant” invalidates the hundreds of references Jesus makes to the old testament? Two and three verses later Jesus refers to his Father’s Kingdom (OT) and then refers to OT prophecy with the words “for it is written”. There is no repudiation of his belief in everything from the old testament.
