A Kind of End to the Mosaic Covenant

"Scripture speaks of an "end" only to the Mosaic covenant:  after quoting Jeremiah 31:31-34, the writer to the Hebrews says:  "In speaking of a new covenant, he makes the first one obsolete.  And what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away."  (Heb 8:13).

It is the Mosaic covenant that is becoming obsolete and ready to vanish.  The book of Hebrews banishes all nostalgia of Jewish Christians' wanting to return to the old ways of the Mosaic era." - Frame, ST, p74.

Yes, and there was a fiery judgment awaiting all who refused to listen to the sermon to the Hebrews.  AD 70.
