The world divides history with the birth of Christ as the dividing line (using B.C. and A.D.). Therefore, most of us grow up assuming that the birth of Jesus is indeed when everything changed. Even Bible publishers have inserted a page right before the birth of Jesus in Matthew 1 that says “The New Testament.”
Nevertheless, the book of Hebrews reveals that a testament (or a covenant) does not go into effect until there’s been a death. In this short video clip, I discuss why the death of Jesus is the true dividing line of human history and why this truth makes so much difference to us today!
