Jesus said in Matthew 26:28 (KJV) which states: 28 "For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins". This clearly indicates to me that Jesus never lived as a human being during the New Testament. Which means as a Jew, at that time, He had to follow Old Covenant laws. Sometimes covent and testament may have the same meaning in the Bible. What is your take on this?

JThomps42- Many believe that Jesus was born during the New Testament and quote New Teatament (the four gespels) as proof that christians must follow Old Covenant laws. But clearly Jesus never lived during the New Testament. Thanks JThomps42.
You are correct sir!
I just do not get this. Unless you say the "bible is the word" of the new covenant. I believe Christ is "the word of the new covenant". So upon his birth it was the new covenant. Christ simply could not live under the old law for He was the new law.
Eric- I believe Hebrews 9: 15through 18 will answer your question. It's to long to write the answer here. Thanks Eric.
Graceinus, you are not serious. That is death of our selves. That has nothing to do with God's. It is when OUR covenant is fulfilled. Not His. You are very confused by somebody.
Eric- Thanks again for your comment. If you read Hebrews 9: 16 where it mentions the word "testator" , this I believe is referring to Jesus Christ if one looks at it in context with the three verses I mentioned earlier.
whonu- Exactly, but there are many who will go to the first pages of the New Testament of the bible and read of the birth of Jesus, then they assume Jesus was born in New Testament times. There's a disconnect on their part. Thanks for your answer.
Eric- Thanks for your answer
