The title, New Testament, is the phrase we use to describe the new covenant with God through Jesus (Luke 22:20). However, God is unchanging so there is not two different testaments, but two phases of one divine covenant. Much of what we read in the New Testament was not really new to those who were reading it in the first century. They had a sharp understanding of scripture. Some of the ideas, however, held the idea of newness when Jesus said, “You have heard that it was said …, but I tell you...” He took what was familiar to them and redefined their knowledge. Jesus did not change what was "said to the people long ago,” but He was clarifying their misunderstandings of God’s law and will. Luke’s story of Jesus Christ brings a beautiful harmony to the Old and New Testaments, and redefines God’s will in our lives. Indeed, nothing is new under the sun, but there is much to learn from Doctor Luke about the God’s unfolding story.
Scripture if filled with story after story, instruction after instruction where God urges His people to “remember!” What ought we to recall? What ranks high on God’s list of things for His followers to recall? Let’s explore THAT!
