OLD TESTAMENT PROPHECY FULFILLED IN CHRIST
The New Covenant is foretold.
Jeremias XXXI:31-34 (Douay Rheims)
Behold, the days shall come, saith the Lord, and I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Juda: Not according to the covenant which I made with their fathers, in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; the covenant which they made void, and I had dominion over them, saith the Lord. But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel, after those days, saith the Lord: I will give my law in their bowels, and I will write it in their heart; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying: Know the Lord; for all shall know me from the least of them even to the greatest, saith the Lord: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
Jeremias began to prophesy in the year 3375 B.C.
The prophecy fulfilled:
Matthew XXVI:28 (Douay Rheims)
For this is my blood of the new testament which shall be shed for many, for the remission of sins.
