Shalom, and welcome to our class on the Covenants. Over a six-week period, we will explore the main covenants found in Scripture (Adamic, Noahic, Abrahamic, Mosaic, Davidic, and New). We will examine the details of each covenant, how they relate to one another, and how they apply to us today. Throughout our study, we will also look at some ancient Near Eastern contracts (including Hittite or Assyrian contracts) and consider how they illuminate our study of covenants. Students will leave the course with a better understanding of story line in Scripture, and they will be better equipped to wrestle through theological dilemmas, such as replacement theology, the role of the law for believers, etc.
