Answer 3

The primary difference between the Old and New Testaments are the relationships that they set up between God and Man. The Old Testament is primarily concerned with the relationship between King and Subject where God informs and the People do. (Exodus 24:3 explicitly says, 3 When Moses went and told the people all the Lord's words and laws, they responded with one voice, "Everything the Lord has said we will do.") The New Testament establishes a covenant of salvation that physically binds God and Man. (This is made explicit in Mark 14:22-24 where it says 22 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, "Take it; this is my body." 23 Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, and they all drank from it. 24 "This is my blood of the[c] covenant, which is poured out for many," he said to them.)
