Oath of the Covenant, the
Author: Kelvin Crombie
Product code: B470
What exactly does the term 'Covenant' mean for followers of Jesus?
Covenants are essentially 'legal' agreements between two entities, which are then sealed or confirmed by the swearing of an oath. Covenants invariably included promises and conditions.
Jeremiah prophesied that God would make (or cut) a new covenant with Israel. This covenant, he stated, would not be like the covenant that God made with their forefathers when He led them out of Egypt.
This book provides some insights into the meaning of oath and covenant gleaned from certain episodes from Israel's history, particularly the covenant between Joshua and the Gibeonites. These insights help us to relate to how covenant was understood in ancient Israel (and later by Jesus and His Jewish followers).
