Questions for Small Group, Family and Personal Reflection

  1. How are the differences between the old and new covenants more than just the forgiveness of sins?
  2. Are there any items, from the list of constrasts above between the old and new covenants, that stand out to you? If so, which one(s) and why?
  3. Chapters 5 and 6 give some clues as to how to live under the new covenant, but even before reading those, think of some ideas that come to your mind as to how to live in the new way of living.
  4. Meditate on the list of items in the right column above (those things that represent the new covenant), spend some time giving thanks to God.
