What the Covenant is Not

The New Covenant – Did the Church Replace Israel as Christians Teach?

The Religious Community of Orthodox Netzarim believes the new covenant mentioned in the book of Jeremiah is with Judah and Israel in the future. We do not share the same beliefs of certain Christian groups who teach that the new covenant is with Christians instead of Judah and Israel.

Some cults also teach that they have somehow “replaced” Israel (referring to themselves as “spiritual Israelites”). Such a doctrine is referred to as “replacement theology.” Replacement theology is one of the leading doctrines in various “Christian” circles that has lead to hatred for the Jewish people. We adamantly reject such a notion as opposed to the clear teaching of the Hebrew Scriptures.
