Abstract The first part of this article the aim is to deal with the following question: How does the “new covenant” differ from the old? Who is included in this new covenant, and how are people brought into this new covenant? Although the subject is vast and encompasses some of the teaching found in the New Testament, the purpose of the article is to focus on the Spirit. According to Paul, the Spirit is the key to the present fulfilment of the eschatological inclusion of the Gentiles into the people of God. An understanding of the old covenant and its significance are interpreted in the second part of the article. The purpose is to provide solutions through a meaningful interpretation and exposition of the relevant passages. In so doing, the difficulties associated with the inclusion of Gentiles are addressed.
