To this world and in the world of marketing, first is always the best, they always say "the rule of first" but in the Bible it's different, since (a) the first Adam fell into sin, the Second Adam and last is JESUS CHRIST who redeemed us from power and curse of sin, (b) the first covenant has fault in it, the second covenant and last testament of grace came thru the LORD JESUS CHRIST, it's no longer based on what man can do, but what GOD did on the cross. (c) the first bloodshed cries of revenge that was the blood of Abel, the second blood shed, the LORD'S blood cries of forgiveness.
