The spiritual pact: By calling this covenant "new", he has made the first one obsolete. Hebrews 8:13

The Kingdom of God is interpreted by many pagans as a mere philosophy, especially the Greeks who were culturally adept at this science, but the Kingdom of Heaven is more than this, it is a new spiritual pact between God and fallen humanity. And this new pact implies a new mediation, a new priesthood to lead men to spiritual maturity in the Lord, the creator of the universe.
Jesus is the High Priest by the order of Melchizedek and not by the order of Aaron (Hebrews 7:11), Jesus is a descendant of Judah and not Levi, the apostle Paul tells us in his epistle to the Hebrews. And this change of priesthood is due to the fact that the law of Moses is incapable of leading us to spiritual perfection, that is, it is incapable of introducing us to the new commandments given by Jesus: "´Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind´; and, ´Love your neighbor as yourself.´" Luke 10:27.
The law of Moses as a whole is made for the natural man and not for the spiritual man made in the likeness of God, this is the fundamental problem of the Law. To understand the difference between the old covenant and the new covenant with Jesus is to understand the difference between the natural man deprived of grace, and the new man, the spiritual man renewed in Christ by faith and the grace of his mercy (compassion, gentleness).
So then Jesus as a new priest introduces us to the perfection of all law, as Paul says: "By calling this covenant "new", he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and outdated will soon disappear" Hebrews 8:13. The new pact established by Jesus is an invitation to live the spiritual gifts, that is, to live ethically, because all the gifts are good by definition.
