Today’s Scripture – 6/11/2015

“The day is coming,” says the Lord, “when I will make a new covenant with the people of Israel and Judah. This covenant will not be like the one I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand and brought them out of the land of Egypt. They broke that covenant, though I loved them as a husband loves his wife,” says the Lord.

“But this is the new covenant I will make with the people of Israel after those days,” says the Lord. “I will put my instructions deep within them, and I will write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. And they will not need to teach their neighbors, nor will they need to teach their relatives, saying, ‘You should know the Lord.’ For everyone, from the least to the greatest, will know me already,” says the Lord. “And I will forgive their wickedness, and I will never again remember their sins.” Jeremiah 31:31-34

  2. Somewhere between 626 BC and 542BC Jeremiah prophesized the coming of Jesus. This was just a generation after Isaiah prophesized the coming of the Messiah. Yet, the people the Messiah was sent to save vastly ignored Jesus, while his ministry spread through the gentile people. Early on, the Jews who believed that Jesus was the Messiah were still considered Jewish. It was about 300 AD that the Jews and Christians became separated. It has always been a conundrum to me how God’s people would not recognize their own savior.
