There is no such thing as a “New” Covenant/Testament
Christians have been led into believing a lie. There is no “New” Covenant. All such references in the Greek Testament are false. There is nothing in the Hebrew Bible that refers to a coming “New” Covenant. The language of the Hebrew Bible in Jeremiah 31:31, correctly reads:
Jer 31:31 “Behold, the days come,” says Yahweh, “that I will make a renewed covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
Jer 31:32 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Misraim; which covenant of mine they broke, although I was a husband to them,” says Yahweh.
Jer 31:33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days,” says Yahweh: I will put my law in their inward parts, and I will write it in their heart. I will be their Mighty One, and they shall be my people.”
Jer 31:34 “They will no longer each teach his neighbor, and every man teach his brother, saying, ‘Know Yahweh;’ for they will all know me, from their least to their greatest,” says Yahweh: “for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.”
The Hebrew word “hadesh” (HhDSh) in Jer. 31:31 must always be translated as “renewed.” In this passage and in context the Hebrew word hadesh cannot mean "new." Isaiah 61:4 uses hadesh for those of Yahweh to: “hadesh (re-build) the waste cities, the ruins of other generations."
FALSELY translating the word “hadesh” as “new” has become extremely important to Christianity, because the word “new” has been used to turn the followers of the First Century Messiah Yahshua (Jesus) away from the Hebrew Bible that he used, and toward the new “replacement Roman Catholic theology” of the Greek New Testament writings. Yahshua never taught anything new, he only taught original Yahwism (Israelism) from the only Hebrew Bible that he had. The “New” Testament Bible was not compiled until after 325 CE.

2151) HhDSh) ac: Renew co: New moon ab: New: The first crescent of the moon as the renewal of the moon, the first day of the month.
Note: The moon is never new it is always there, but not always in view. It becomes “renewed” (viewable) by light from the sun (visible) when the crescent of the existing moon is again viewable by the eye.
The “renewed” Covenant is not a “new” Covenant. Furthermore, the entire New Testament Greek, is not a “new” Testament either, it is actually a substitute Testament that attempts to replace the Hebrew Bible that Yahshua used with a substitute religious belief that rewrites the prophet Yahshua (aka Jesus) into a god-man, added a pagan human sacrifice system, added a trinity God and then called it the “New Testament.”
Yahshua (aka Jesus of the Greek writings) never ever used the Greek writings; he only used the Hebrew Bible as his foundational source. The original Covenant was between Yahweh (the Almighty of Israel) and ancient Biblical Israel. It was, however, originally “externally” administrated by the appointed priests.
The “renewed” Covenant replaces the “externally administrated” Covenant of Deut 5:2-22, because YHWH is now placing the principles of the original Covenant “internally” within the heart all those that seek and do His will, the will of Father, the will of the Almighty Sovereign Creator Power Life-Force Essence of all that is, has ever existed, now exists, and will ever exist. (Jer. 31:33). This renewed Covenant became available after the Temple was destroyed by Rome in 70 CE, along with the priesthood, and what had become, a corrupted Sacrificial System.
The renewed “internal Covenant” is available for all true followers of Yahshua, as he taught them to seek only “The Kingdom of Yahweh/or heaven.” The renewed Covenant does not require a priest, a pastor, a Temple, a human sacrifice, a Church, a religious administrator, Jesus, or a religious system of any kind. All believers are free to choose and enter the “Kingdom/Council” of Yahweh by repenting and then by keeping the renewed Covenant as it was originally given to ancient Israel at their beginning, (Deut. 5:2-22), the 10 Commandments. (Also Read: Isaiah 56). For Christians, (Read: Matt. 5:17, Matt. 7:21).
Note: The old statutes, the ordinances and the judgments of ancient Israel (torah i.e. the laws of Moses) were originally necessary for Moses to develop a new civil-monotheistic National Identity which then became the ancient Biblical State of Israel. The laws of ancient Israel at that time were needed to separate the Israelites (as a new civil Nation) from the surrounding pagan nations. However, the original monotheistic Ancient National State of Israel has not existed since the division of the Kingdoms (721 BCE) and that Israel no longer exists today. In addition, many Laws of Moses are no longer applicable, since the end of that “religious world” was destroyed in 70 CE. Many of the ancient civil-religious laws of Moses could never apply today because of our modern liberal societies. To apply them would require a completely new Biblically based monotheistic State, which is not going to happen soon, if ever.
The ancient slaughter system of ancient Israel (under the laws of Moses) simply used animal products and other food items (as items of value) to pay for violations of the laws. This was at a time when money or currency was not used or invented for their society. Today we make “sacrifices” not by the loss of animals or other food products, but by the loss of our money, our currency and for some maybe it will even cost jail time as well for the violation of the laws.
To review: the Biblical Hebrew the word "hadesh" means to renew, to make anew or to repair. See how the word "hadesh" has been used in the following passages: 1 Sam. 11:14; 1 Chr. 15:8; 2 Chr. 24:4, 12; Job 10:17; Psalm 51:10; 103:5; 104:30; Isaiah 61:4; and Lamentations 5:21.
Psalm 51:19 “Create in me a clean heart, O Mighty One; and hadesh (renew) a right spirit within me."
Psalm 103:5 “Who satisfies your mouth with good things; so that your youth is hadesh (renewed) like the eagles."
Lam. 5:21 “Turn Thou us unto you, O YHWH, and we shall be turned; hadesh (renew) our days as of old.”
