When speaking of "the blood of the covenant (Matt 26:28;
Mark 14:24; Luke 21:20), Jesus knew
that His crucifixion was required to meet the judicial requirements of atoning for mankind's sins and inaugurating the New Covenant.
Sacrificing His only Son Jesus is the supreme demonstration of God's loving steadfast commitment to the promises He
made to Abraham.
Because the blood of Jesus expiates (covers) the sins of human beings, and Christ Himself is the place where
propitiation takes place, God provides the only means through which man is totally and for all time forgiven - through faith in the
atonement of His only Son Jesus Christ.
It is precisely this aspect of the Mosaic Covenant that Jesus Christ fulfills.
Aware of His Father's desire that His people know His ways and the history of His Father's loving commitment to the Abrahamic Covenant,
Jesus speaks of God's ongoing labors:
Jesus answered and said to them, "This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent."
Through faith in Jesus, one can become "God's own possession" and "His kingdom of priests and holy nation;" thus,
enabling their entrance into the Land.
Despite the fact that the Mosaic Covenant was broken, God still provided the means to fulfill His promises to Abraham
by providing His only Son Jesus Christ.
