What reason is given for making the new covenant?


"For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second. For
finding fault with them, He says, Behold, the days come, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant."
Heb. 8:7,8.
NOTE - The chief fault in connection with the old covenant lay with the People. They were not
able, in themselves, to fulfil their part of it, and it provided them no help for so doing. There was no Christ
in it. It was of works and not of grace. It was valuable only as a means of impressing upon them their
sinfulness and their need of divine aid.
