Exodus Study (pt. 25)
Today's lesson examines the concept of an ancient Near Eastern Covenant. In Biblical times covenants were everywhere.
God uses the idea of a covenant to help the Israelites understand the type of God he is and the nature of the relationship they are entering.
Simply put, God is a god who covenants and wants to covenant with us.
But what does that mean? What is the nature of an ancient Covenant that can help us understand our relationship with God?
To begin, our Bible is comprised of a series of covenants. From Adam to Noah, Abraham to Moses, to David, and finally, the latest covenant through Jesus.
Even though we refer to the two sections of the Bible as "Testaments," they are, in fact, Covenants - the Old Covenant (Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, David) and the New Covenant (Jesus).
When we understand the nature of a covenant relationship and the significance of Jesus' death, we begin to see deeper into our amazing relationship with God.
