Question 2 - Covenant: Righteousness

Romans 2:13 NKJV - "…, but the doers of the law will be justified;"
Romans 3:20 NKJV - "Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin."
                The behavior of the covenant is different, the deeds of the covenant is different. Behavior”, means this is merged in Ten Commandments. The deeds of the covenant are burnt sacrifices, daily offerings, Sabbath offering, etc. These deeds are different from the behavior. So, the covenant mingled with the deeds and the behavior in virtue.

                The Lord Christ came to this world to enlighten the covenant. And also Christ explained clearly that He came to fulfill the covenant of His Father, but not strike out. “An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth”, was present in those days. That means the adulterous woman is stoned to death. If a man breaks any ones teeth or if a man damages any ones eye, the punishment to such a person for his action is to destroy his eye or to break his teeth only. So, the Lord Christ came to this world to make the people to follow the covenant peacefully to set right by Him. If we follow only the covenant, the coming of the Lord Christ in this world is waste. So, we must unite with the Lord Christ and follow the covenant. Then only, we can enter in completeness.
