In Scripture, usually signifies covenant, and not a man's last will, Matthew 26:28 . Both meanings are blended, however, in Hebrews 9:16-17 . Paul speaks of the New Testament, or covenant, in the blood of the Redeemer; and calls the law the old covenant, and the gospel the new covenant, 1 Corinthians 1:1-16:24 11:25 2 Corinthians 3:6,14 Hebrews 7:22 10:1-39 12:24 . See BIBLE , and COVENANT .
