      Jesus is the "surety of a better covenant".
    2. Hebrews 8:6

      2. Romans 3:20,28

    2. Justification Acheived Only In Christ
      1. Galatians 3:24
      2. Romans 5:1, 9
  5. The New Covenant Excels In Glory

      Truly, the New Covenant is far better than the old! With this knowledge, none should "desire to be under the law".
