The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of the old covenant —the covenant God made with Israel in the Old Testament. As Alistair Begg explains, Christ’s death provides a level of access to God that the old covenant only hinted at. The fulfillment of this covenant through Jesus’ death and resurrection provides us with a full and complete pardon that cleanses us of our sins and gives us new life in Christ. In Him, we can finally rest assured.
11But when Christ appeared as a high priest of the good things that have come,5 then through the greater and more perfect tent (not made with hands, that is, not of this creation)
