Thus, the new covenant is far superior to the old one (i.e.dem, according to Paul and according to Hebrew. This is implicitly implicit in the use of the adjective „new” in 1 Co 11:25 (cf. Luke 22:20), which clearly alludes to the negative contrast of Jeremiah (Jeremiah 31, 31-32). Paul is, however, even more picky in 2 Co 3, where he explicitly contrasts new and old alliances and emphasizes the great inferiority of the old in relation to the superior glory and constancy of the new. A similar and negative comparison is also made by its „figurative” contrast between Hagar and Sarah in Gal 4:21-31. In form, an alliance is an agreement between two people and includes promises from each against the other. The concept of a union between God and his people is one of the central themes of the Bible. In the biblical sense, an alliance involves much more than a contract or a simple agreement between two parties. Bible students have very different opinions about the number of great covenants that exist (or existed) between God and humanity, the number ranging from one to twelve at least.
(For more information on two of the main points of view, see Covenant Theology and Healing Time.) Some scholars rank only two: an alliance of promise and an alliance of the law. The first involved an oath of God – a word of promise rather than order – while the second is known in the Bible as „the law.”  The Old Testament contains many examples of alliances between people who have linked on an equal footing. David and Jonathan, for example, made an alliance because they loved each other – this agreement required each of them to perform certain tasks (1 Sat. 18:3). Now come on, let`s make a wedding ring, me and you; and it will be for a testimony between them and me. The Edenic alliance applies to all humanity. It can be found in Genesis 1:28-30. In this section, God gives humanity a mandate to reproduce and God gives humanity the domination of the earth and all beasts. [Citation required] Finally, „One for All” (He.
