An Analysis of Jeremiah’s Use of the Mosaic Covenant Name Date University An Analysis of Jeremiah’s Use of the Mosaic Covenant Introduction As we have learned, the Mosaic covenant is one of the six covenants of Biblical Law that God created with the land of Israel. The covenants were meant to provide corrections to the behavior of men, who lived in sin, where the authority lies in the work of God and the trust that the people must feel for God and show Him in the way that they behave (McConville, 2002, p. 65). This paper discusses the book of Jeremiah, and how he used both the Mosaic covenant and the Decalogue - or the Ten Commandments - to restate the covenant that God had with them, while critiquing the state of the Israelis. Jeremiah...The end:
.....per reconnection of the Israel people with God’s grace (McConville, 2002, p. 65). This shows how the covenants work and how God’s forgiveness of the disobedience of the people is ultimately a part of how they work, and how new covenants can be established based on man’s obedience or disobedience of prior covenants. In other words, Gods’ grace is ultimate and the Holy Spirit can exist within the hearts of man as a means to provide connection, as Jeremiah stated in his critique of the Israel people, and hopeful scripture for redemption.
