Moses and Jesus: Sermon on the Mount Series
Sermon on the Mount • 24-Oct-2021
Pastor Terry Feix continued our series on the Sermon on the Mount, explaining the covenants God made with his people. The old covenant was built on the law that was given to Moses. God gave commandments, or rules, to guide a nation, Israel, to give them a way into righteousness, a law of works (something that was not completely achievable and required ongoing sacrifices). The religious leaders enacted 613 laws around the Ten Commandments and were impossible to obey 100%. The law revealed the need for a Savior. God made a new covenant with his people, he sent Jesus to fulfill the law, and to instill a new covenant written on the individual hearts of Christians. The new covenant is fulfilled by faith, and it is proven by obedience to the greatest commandments, to love God and others –the entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.
