The Sixth Covenant
By Kelly Salbato
The Covenant With Jesus Christ
(The new Covenant is hidden in the Old and the Old is explained in the New.)
We saw David's sins and then we saw his son Solomon fall. Solomon's son Raobom falls. The 12 tribes of Israel are now torn. 10 tribes split, leaving two tribes now called Judah. The 10 tribes of Israel were overrun in 722 BC by the Asyrians. In 586 BC under King Zedekiah. Nebecudnezzer overran Jerusalem and ended the sacrifice.
Zechariah 3 - Joshua the high priest was crowned by the prophet. The Israelites were ruled by the High Priest. They had no political freedom. No military power. The four centuries prior to Christ, the Israelites were devoid of any prophets or kings. They are left with nothing but God. At that time, the Israelites grew in the Lord and eventually even began to die for their faith.
The word Bethlehem means "House of Bread"
At Jesus birth, Herod ordered the killing of all male children under two years old. The Holy Family fled to Egypt, fulfilling the prophecy "Out of Egypt have I called my son."
He crossed the Jordan and was baptized.
Jesus fasted for forty days and was tempted in the desert.
As soon as his 40 days were over, Jesus went to a mountain and preached (the beatitudes). He chose the 12 apostles.
