ANE Covenant Example
Ancient Near East Covenant Example with Scripture Verses
Bible 101 (pt. 4) Covenant
Moses acts as a covenant mediator for the brand-new nation of Israel.
God uses the ancient Near Eastern Suzerain Vassal covenant structure to communicate this new relationship to his people.
When we understand the components of an ancient Near Eastern covenant, we begin to see the underlying structure within the Biblical text.
If we don't understand ANE Covenants, we miss the details the Bible communicates to us.
Join us for this lesson as we explore the underlying structure of the Mosaic Covenant and how it helps us understand our relationship with God.

Bible 101 (pt. 2)
The generations following Adam and Eve became wicked, violent, and murderous. God's heart was grieved, and, in His wisdom, He decided to "start over" through Noah and his family.
Noah's story is a "de-creation" followed by "re-creation" and a new beginning for humanity. After the flood, God makes a covenant with humanity through Noah as the covenant mediator.
His promise to humanity is that He will not destroy the earth again with a flood, and as a sign of the covenant, God sets his "bow" in the clouds.
In today's lesson, we will explore the ancient context of the Hebrew word for "bow" and the implications for how we understand this remarkable covenant with humanity.
