Brit Chadashah Blessings -

Thanking God for the New Covenant Scriptures

Printer-Friendly PDF

Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the
house of Israel, and with the house of Judah. - Jer 31:31

The New Testament is called B'rit HaChadashah in Hebrew, meaning "the New Covenant" (the word B'rit means "covenant" and Chadashah means "new"). Just like the Torah and Haftarah blessings, Messianic Jewish believers thank the LORD God of Israel for the gift of the New Covenant Scriptures before and after reading from them.
