Jesus and the Eucharist Foretold by the Prophets

Today we begin to explore the final covenant in salvation history—Jesus. Review prophets like Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel with Richaél Lucero. They reveal a covenant that is not confined to Jesus the God-man or his Passion and death. But includes the events in the Upper Room on Holy Thursday and the height of the Divine Liturgy we celebrate every Sunday—the Eucharist. You’ll also learn why this covenant was foretold as a *new, everlasting, covenant of peace.*

Throughout the series Richaél Lucero will examine one of the six key figures, the covenant they made with God and its meaning.

Isaiah 9:6: For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government will be upon his shoulder, and his name will be called “Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”

Isaiah 42:6 God speaks to the this future divine ruler from the line of David: “I am the Lord, I have called you in righteousness, I have taken you by the hand and kept you; I have given you as a covenant to the people, a light to the nations,

Isaiah 55:1-3 God explains how this future covenant will work: “Ho, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.

Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy? Hearken diligently to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourselves in fatness.

Incline your ear, and come to me; hear, that your soul may live; and I will make with you an everlasting covenant, my steadfast, sure love for David.”

Jeremiah 33:31-33 : “Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah, not like the covenant which I made with their fathers when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, my covenant which they broke, though I was their husband, says the Lord. But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put my law within them, and I will write it upon their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Luke 22 Last Supper Narrative: “This cup which is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.”

In Ezekiel 36:24-27 we read this: “For I will take you from the nations, and gather you from all the countries, and bring you into your own land. I will sprinkle clean water upon you, and you shall be clean from all your uncleannesses, and from all your idols I will cleanse you. A new heart I will give you, and a new spirit I will put within you; and I will take out of your flesh the heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to observe my ordinances.” 

In 37:25-26 Ezekiel goes on to say this: “… and David my servant shall be their prince for ever. I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them; and I will bless them and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.”
