Prophets have always been God's covenant lawyers. Under the Old Covenant, they came as God's lawyers to prosecute his case against his covenant partner, Israel. Now, in the New Covenant, they are still God's covenant lawyers, but the covenant has changed. Instead of pointing out guilt, sin, and condemnation, the New Covenant lawyer's job is to point to the New Covenant, to declare, "You are released from shame; you are forgiven; you are free!"
