Reader comment on item: A Christian Boom
in response to reader comment: New Covenant, Jesus, and The Gospel of Luke

Submitted by Sohail (United Kingdom), Dec 30, 2006 at 06:56

I know I know. It is the same law with a different sign and a different covenant. This passage of Jeremiah speaks of the New Covenant but it is just a supplement to some other passages fortelling and the actual New Covenant. To say that one passage about the New Covenant does not talk about Gentiles and concluding that it will not reach the Gentiles is a bit of an assumption. This fails against hypothesis 2 which says that Jesus gave the Holy Spirit to the Jews first so that they could minister to the Gentiles. The new covenant was for the Jewish people not the gentiles.

Since none of them are ceremonial laws, I follow any of them. I told you that all codes about morality (ie. incest, rape, murder, etc) still apply. Jesus said you should follow all of them. When will he be called those names? Jesus is already known as the Prince of Peace and Mighty God. Just because it isn't used in the Bible does not mean he is called that. He is called, Almighty God, several times in Revelation: 6Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: "Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns. (Revelation 19:6 NIV) This is said when Jesus is about to conquer all evil on the Day of the Lord. Yes today Christians call Jesus those names but never is he called those names in the Bible.

The following two verses contradict each other on about Jesus knowing everything: 17The third time he said to him, "Simon son of John, do you love me?" Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, "Do you love me?" He said, "Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you." John 21:17 32"No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father Mark 13:32 Sohail
