I’m currently studying through the Old Testament. I’m curious to hear some thoughts on verses such as Exodus 12:24, when referencing the passover: “Remember, these instructions are a permanent law that you and your descendants must observe forever." I understand that Jesus brought a New Covenant, but how does the New Covenant negate/cancel OT verses such as this one?
I have friends who are Messianic Jews. They strictly observe these types of commands, even to the point of removing any traces of yeast from their home during this time. I struggle to understand how a focus on these types of things truly encourage us to focus on the New Covenant and the fulfillment of the law that Jesus brought. But then again, how do verses, such as the one mentioned above, play into all this? I hope my question is clear.
Blessings to each one,
