2. Why were both ancient Israel and the Christian church chosen by God to enter into a covenant relationship with Him?
3. Why does a covenant need some visible symbol?
4. Even though we are still confined to this earth, how can we be confident of our place in heaven?
5. What does it mean to have God’s law written on your heart (Jer. 31:33)?
6. We no longer have to bring a lamb as a sacrifice. So, how then can we keep a sense of the magnitude and costly expense of Jesus’ death for us?
