Affected Teachings
(Exo 24:8 KJV) And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said, Behold the blood of the covenant, which the LORD hath made with you concerning all these words. When the modern versions leave out the word “new” the verse can be misconstrued to mean a continuation of the covenant of Sinai which we read here in Exodus 24:8. The Lord Jesus Christ went to the cross and instituted the NEW covenant or testament. It was totally different than the Old Testament. (Jer 31:31 KJV) Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: The new covenant was a fulfillment of numerous Old Testament passages of Scripture such as Jeremiah 31:31. When the modern versions omit “new” it leaves grace out of the equation. The new covenant is the only way a person can become saved because under the law of the Old Testament, it was called a curse since no one could ever keep the law for salvation. (Gal 3:10 KJV) For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. Jesus was the new Passover lamb which was foreshadowed under the old covenant by the lambs which were sacrificed on the altar in the tabernacle and temple. (Heb 12:24 KJV) And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. Jesus was the mediator of the New Covenant not just “a” covenant. There needs to be a specific rendering so a difference between the old and new can be recognized. Once again the modern versions bring nothing but confusion and wrong teachings. It is better to stay with the King James Bible and avoid these confusion traps.
