26 Now while they were eating, Jesus took some bread, and after a blessing, He broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is My body.”

The covenant in the blood of Christ is referenced multiple times on the NT. However, it is also referenced multiple times in the OT. Understanding the OT references is absolutely crucial to a right understanding of perhaps the most significant covenant in Scripture!
The necessary hermeneutical tools to find them are literal interpretation and allowing Scripture to interpret Scripture. The ability to work with the text in the original language is a distinct advantage! I can assure anyone who may read this that misunderstanding this covenant will almost guarantee a significant misunderstanding of the chronology of the events leading up to the great tribulation. I’m betting that no one here can connect the OT dots necessary for a right understanding of this covenant. Prove me wrong and I will be most impressed!
