The Old and the New Covenant

Mark 11:17

And as he taught them, he said, “Is it not written:  ” ‘My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations. But you have made it ‘a den of robbers.

Isaiah 56:7

these I will bring to my holy mountain and give them joy in my house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be accepted on my altar; for my house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.”

Jeremiah 7:11

Has this house, which bears my Name, become a den of robbers to you? But I have been watching! declares the LORD.

One thought on “The Old and the New Covenant

  1. Isaiah 56! I was looking at that passage on Shabbat with a friend as we contemplated the blessings to the Gentile who binds himself to Israel through Messiah Yeshua.

    I did not notice the little phrase in verse 7 about burnt offerings and sacrifices until I read this post this morning!! Fits perfectly with another blog post I made yesterday on Rav Shaul (Paul) offering sacrifices in the Temple at Pentecost and a thought on future sacrifices according to Ezekiel 43 and 44. Interesting.

    Recognizing it is off the thrust of your title, but with Yeshua’s perfect atoning sacrifice complete, we can enter the covenant through His blood and have Torah written on our hearts. Jer. 31:33 and Hebrews 8:10!! HelleluYAH!
