2017 – The Meaning of the New Covenant (Jer 31)

The Meaning of the New Covenant (Jeremiah 31) for Israel and the Church

Paper at BEST-conference on the covenant, Apeldoorn – 30 March 2017 (not published)

In Jeremiah 31 a new covenant is announced. Because Jewish and Christian theologians differ in their interpretation of this, I discuss this new covenant in the context of the Book of Jeremiah and study the references to it in the New Testament.
Next to Jewish and Christian interpretations, also the perspective of Messianic Jews on this subject is considered. How do these groups consider their involvement in the new covenant?
