Don't know why it ended up under this category as I was wanting to post it in Theology.
I am not a teacher like most seem to be so that is why I asked.

Yeah, the change of category can change the context of the conversation dramatically.

I ain't no teacher either. :-)

Luke 22:20  And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, "This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.


The New Covenant is based on the Blood of Christ.   It was and remains an acceptable sacrifice to God Almighty to reconcile mankind back to Him.

Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins.

Heb 9:22  Indeed, under the law almost everything is purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins.

The blood of goats and rams was a temporary relief from sins.   Christ's Blood was shed once and remains effective forever.  Christ is better and He inaugurated a better Covenant.   The Old Covenant is obsolete.

Heb 9:1  Now even the first covenant had regulations for worship and an earthly place of holiness.
Heb 9:2  For a tent was prepared, the first section, in which were the lampstand and the table and the bread of the Presence. It is called the Holy Place.
Heb 9:3  Behind the second curtain was a second section called the Most Holy Place,
Heb 9:4  having the golden altar of incense and the ark of the covenant covered on all sides with gold, in which was a golden urn holding the manna, and Aaron's staff that budded, and the tablets of the covenant.
Heb 9:5  Above it were the cherubim of glory overshadowing the mercy seat. Of these things we cannot now speak in detail.
Heb 9:6  These preparations having thus been made, the priests go regularly into the first section, performing their ritual duties,
Heb 9:7  but into the second only the high priest goes, and he but once a year, and not without taking blood, which he offers for himself and for the unintentional sins of the people.
Heb 9:8  By this the Holy Spirit indicates that the way into the holy places is not yet opened as long as the first section is still standing
Heb 9:9  (which is symbolic for the present age). According to this arrangement, gifts and sacrifices are offered that cannot perfect the conscience of the worshiper,
Heb 9:10  but deal only with food and drink and various washings, regulations for the body imposed until the time of reformation.
Heb 9:11  But when Christ appeared as a high priest of the good things that have come, then through the greater and more perfect tent (not made with hands, that is, not of this creation)
Heb 9:12  he entered once for all into the holy places, not by means of the blood of goats and calves but by means of his own blood, thus securing an eternal redemption.
Heb 9:13  For if the blood of goats and bulls, and the sprinkling of defiled persons with the ashes of a heifer, sanctify for the purification of the flesh,
Heb 9:14  how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God.
Heb 9:15  Therefore he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, since a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions committed under the first covenant.
Heb 9:16  For where a will is involved, the death of the one who made it must be established.
Heb 9:17  For a will takes effect only at death, since it is not in force as long as the one who made it is alive.
Heb 9:18  Therefore not even the first covenant was inaugurated without blood.
Heb 9:19  For when every commandment of the law had been declared by Moses to all the people, he took the blood of calves and goats, with water and scarlet wool and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book itself and all the people,
Heb 9:20  saying, "This is the blood of the covenant that God commanded for you."
Heb 9:21  And in the same way he sprinkled with the blood both the tent and all the vessels used in worship.
Heb 9:22  Indeed, under the law almost everything is purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins.
Heb 9:23  Thus it was necessary for the copies of the heavenly things to be purified with these rites, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.
Heb 9:24  For Christ has entered, not into holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true things, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God on our behalf.
Heb 9:25  Nor was it to offer himself repeatedly, as the high priest enters the holy places every year with blood not his own,
Heb 9:26  for then he would have had to suffer repeatedly since the foundation of the world. But as it is, he has appeared once for all at the end of the ages to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.
Heb 9:27  And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment,
Heb 9:28  so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.

Heb 8:13  In speaking of a new covenant, he makes the first one obsolete. And what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away.

What is the New Covenant in detail?
What is God's requirement under the New Covenant?
What is our requirement under the New Covenant?

THE LAW

Why did Moses bring 2 sets of tablets down from Mt. Sinai?
Hint: There are two interpretations here, one Jewish and one Christian.  Use Occam's Razor(*) to determine the most obvious answer.
   
What happened between the introduction of the first and second set of tablets?
What additional promise did Adonai make with regard to the second set of tablets?

How do these events parallel the organization of the Bible into the first and second covenants?
Hint: One of the names of ha-mashiah (Jewish messiah) is Emmanuel.  What is the meaning of the name?

What is a covenant and how does this word differ from a testament?
Hint: The difference in word meanings can be applied to the promises of Adonai in the Old Covenant and advent of Adonai in the New Covenant?

GRACE

What are the two major differences between the old covenant and the new covenant?
Hint: Use Occam's Razor(*) to determine the most obvious answer.

Jesus said the Law was NOT abolished, but that He came to fulfill it. (Matt 5:17)
What is the difference between abolition and fulfillment with regard to the Law?
What do the words abolition and fulfillment mean?

What additional promises and actions of Adonai appear in the prophecies of and advent of the New Covenant?
Hint: Grace does not abolish the Law.  Grace fulfills the Law.   How is this accomplished in the person and sacrifice of Y'shuah ha-mashiah (Hebrew name of the Son of God)?

Study and provide answers to the above questions and you will learn the mystery of redemption as related in the entire text of the Bible - God's Word.

and that's me, hollering from the choir loft...

(*) Occam's Razor is a problem solving technique which suggests that among competing answers the one with the fewest assumptions should be selected.
