Is The New Covenant A Law?
First, the New Testament consists of statements which are called law (James 1:25; Romans 3:27; 8:1,2; Galatians 6:2; Isaiah 2:3). The third fundamental law of logic is often called the law of identity where A = A. A thing is what it is. A law is a law.
Second, the New Testament consists of statements that are exemplified as law (Matthew 7:21-23; Luke 6:46; 1 Corinthians 9:20,21), and are comprised of the constituent elements of law (John 14:15 - "commandments"; 1 Corinthians 14:37 - "commandments"; 1 John 5:2,3 - "commandments").
Therefore, the New Testament is a law that was given by Jesus Christ, who is King of kings and Lord of lords (Matthew 28:18). Jesus came to establish a better covenant (Hebrews 8:1-13) with new decrees, rules, and greater hopes and promises.
