In the covenant between Jacob and Laban we see a shadow of the covenant between the Father and the Son. Jesus talked about the new covenant in his blood when he instituted the practice of communion. His blood being poured out was the sign of this covenant. It was the pillar and heap of stones. That is why, whenever we take communion we do it in remembrance of Jesus and his blood that he gave for us. It is a reminder that the Father covenanted with the Son to take upon himself the sins of his people so that all that believe might be forgiven and have eternal life. According to Paul in 2 Corinthians 3, the old covenant that God made with the Israelites through Moses came to an end in the death of Christ. The old covenant brought death and condemnation but the new covenant brought life and glory. To be a beneficiary of the new covenant you must know the one who is the mediator of this covenant, Jesus Christ. You must know him as Lord. You must have the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. You must know that he who raised the Lord Jesus will raise you and bring you into his presence. “Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. 21 For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”
