Question: Which is the first verse in the New Covenant scripture?

Answer: The quick answer would be Mat 1:1, however, the correct answer will be Gen 3:15. This verse, which is the first promise of the Messiah, reads thus,

And I put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed. He shall crush your head, and you shall crush His heel.  (Gen 3:15)

Thus, we see that the Renewed Covenant began with the beginning of the Redemption Plan of YHVH at the very dawn of mankind. Mat 1:1 is the beginning of the Apostolic writings concerning the promised Prophet’s ministry.
