Comment on What’s the Difference Between the Old Covenant & New Covenant in the Bible? by Josh Freeman.

G,

I found your reply interesting. Although I understand what you are getting at, I cannot help but think that Jesus did not replace the OT with any higher standards. In fact, I believe God has always kept very high standards for His people. Although Jesus may call us to go “above and beyond” the old law, if we read the OT closely, Jesus really wasn’t sharing much “new” information. He was rather reviving the standards God originally intended. I agree that Jesus calls His disciples to high standards, however, it seems that God has always kept His standards fairly high.
