Renewed covenant

There is no Biblical basis for the separation of “old” and “new” Testament or “old” and “new” covenant for that matter.
A simple search for “covenant” yields 360 results in the Good News Translation. Which ones do you consider “old” which ones “new”?
Today’s Reading, Hebrews 8:1-13, as all “new covenant” texts does not actually use νέος (Greek “new”) but καινος (Greek for “renewed”). That tells us a whole lot about how we see God: Does God just ditch one relationship to enter the next or is God’s love consistent and reliable? I vote for the latter!
