The Blood of the Covenant

We live in a world very concerned about legal matters.  Breach of contract is a very serious thing.  And that is fitting.  People who enter into contracts should plan to keep the promises that they are making.

In our passage for today, Jesus talks about something kind of like contracts.  He talks about covenants.  But he talks about covenants in the context of instituting the Lord’s Supper.  He speaks of his blood being the blood of the new covenant.  Let’s look what the Lord’s Supper has to do about the creating of a new covenant.
