The Prophets and the Covenants Throughout the Old Testament God has made several agreements or covenants with the people he loved He gives commands and makes promises Even thought these covenants are made with the descendants of one same nation their deep nature and effects are similar in some points but extremely different in others A study of all the covenants would be enormous that is why we will concentrate on some of these different covenants made in the Old Testament between the people of Israel and God through some of the prophets that we studied in class This analysis will bring some light into the ultimate goal of the Lord We find the first Covenant in the book of Genesis it is maybe the greatest today because it is respected by three major religions around the world Judaism Christianism and Islam This first Covenant is a covenant to Abraham called Abram in the beginning God called him and promised to give his offspring the land of Canaan Gen 121-7 and that his descendants would be as numerous as the stars 155 This was a phenomenal promise but Abram believed the Lord and he credited it to him as righteousness 156 The reason why we find renewal of the covenant to the people of Israel is that God promised to renew the covenant with Abrams descendants not only that they would be numerous but also that he would be their God 177 This is more than the original covenant promised The second great covenant and probably the most popular was made with Moses God remembered the covenant he had made with Abraham Isaac and Jacob and he brought their descendants out of slavery in Egypt While they were on their way to the land of Canaan God made a covenant with them at Mt Sinai As their ruler he gave laws and they agreed to keep them If you obey
