In which Testament Old or New was Jesus born, lived and taught during His ministry?


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.

    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.
