Why did God offer a new covenant?


Jeremiah 31:31

ESV - 31 Behold, the days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah.

There have been a number of covenants, each one "new" at the time it was made.
See the question "What are the covenants of the Bible?" for more information.

The last covenant in Christ frees us from the penalty of the Law (Rom 8:1-3) so that salvation is God's free gift of grace (Eph 2:8-9) to all peoples of the world who accept his Son (Acts 4:12).
