Most people fail to see that when Yahuah said, "He will make a new covenant with the House of Yasharal and the House of Yahudah" in Jeremiah 31:31-34 and referenced in Hebrew 8:8 that the word "chadash" ( חָדַשׁ) is used for the word "new" which means to renew, repair. Therefore, he is saying that He will make a renewed covenant with them. Contrary to popular belief, the covenant that Yahusha established in the Brit Chadash (New Testament) was a re-establishment of the former. He said that He didn't come to abolish but to fulfill the law, and He did just that. In fact, according to Dictionary.com, Renew means to resume after an interruption.
What is the interruption? Adoni Yahusha HaMashiach.
According to Isaiah 1:11-14, at that time, our sacrifices were rendered useless in the sight of Aluah. We had taken for granted the sacrifices established and given to us through the Law of Mosheh. Our forefathers' sacrifices were no longer pleasing to Yahuah because our sins were so great. For reference, Hebrew 10:4-10 explains that every year our people would sacrifice Yahuah, but in the end, sin would remain. And if we take it a step further, every Shabbat sacrifice would be made by the priest, so actually, weekly sacrifices were made without regard to true repentance. Therefore, Yahusha came to show us how to fulfill the law by living holy and acceptable and as a pleasing aroma to Yahuah. His sacrifice on the cursed tree was the ultimate sacrifice.
Therefore, when it says in Jeremiah 31:33-34, "But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Yasharal; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the Lord: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more." He is literally saying that the part of the covenant that required physical sacrifice will be no more. However, the laws will remain, and He will write them in our inward parts: minds and hearts.
The laws are how you are identified as children of the Most High. They are the sign of the covenant, much like the Shabbat. See the article entitled "The Way..." to see what Yahusha meant when He said that He is the way, the truth, and the life. The law is definitely still applicable.
