Feed your mind and excite your imagination with The Restoration Covenant Series-Adam: Created in the Image of God. You've read modern interpretations of God's covenants; now prepare yourself for ancient ideas that modern Bible teachers have left behind! Engulf yourself in a different worldview, where God is systematically restoring His relationship to man, one covenant at a time. Just as He walked with Adam and Eve in the Garden, He desires to walk with mankind again. To achieve His goal, He has been tearing down the barriers mankind erected. These barriers have kept us from experiencing peace with God, ruling over nature, peaceful government, harmonious marriages, and successful childrearing. By understanding God's covenant plan, we can begin experiencing His restoration today. Gather your friends, and sit down together for a Bible Study experience you'll be talking about for years to come.

Noah was a man of his time. He faced the same temptations and urges as his neighbors, but with a difference. He resisted those urges. Instead of seeking instant gratification, Noah was willing to wait. He knew that the violence and wickedness around him brought no one any lasting pleasure, as Cain had clearly illustrated. Violence bred more violence, until all hope of security and peace was lost. Those who tried to resist it were either seduced into it or killed, until only one righteous man remained. If God were going to salvage mankind, Noah was God’s last hope. This Bible study is designed to bring Noah’s struggles and conflicts into your living room and into your heart. You may rejoice with his victories and cry with his defeats, but most importantly, learn from his life. God’s commands were heart wrenching. How could Noah willingly participate in God’s plan? His obedience would bring death to his family, friends and society! Almost everyone and everything he ever knew would be lost! How could he live through such a great personal loss? Gather your friends together. This is an experience you will want to share. Noah’s legacy—it is a story to remember.

As a theologian in the Reformed tradition, covenant theology was for Jonathan Edwards the internal scaffolding that gave shape to the biblical story of redemption. The establishment of the eternal rule of righteousness as the basis of the believer’s communion with God and eternal happiness is a central theme beginning with the Covenant of Works, grounded in the eternal Covenant of Redemption, and culminating in the Covenant of Grace. It is the basis for the law-gospel distinction in Edwards and the early architects of federal theology. For the “God intoxicated” New England Puritan preacher, this was no dry academic exercise. Rather, it was a joyous and affectionate discovery and embrace of what God had ordained in eternity, what Christ accomplished in history on the cross, and what the Holy Spirit is doing and will complete in the church. This study grew out of current discussions in Reformed scholarship questioning aspects of traditional covenant theology. As a key transitional figure in the history of Reformed theology, Edwards’s thinking is still relevant. The richness and depth of Edwards’s vision of redemptive history provides a clear and comprehensive understanding of his Reformed soteriology and the role of evangelical obedience in justification.
In sum , our survey of covenant in Deuteronomy and the Deuteronomistic History , with its background in ancient Near Eastern treaties , has revealed several features of covenant that will prove to be important in future discussion .
Chapter 12 explores this important allusion further and its implications for covenant relationships. Psalm 105 The paired historical Pss 105 and 106 conclude Book IV by recounting Israel's history and interpreting it theologically.

An examination of the relationship between the Davidic covenant and Abrahamic and Mosaic covenants reflected in the editorial shape and shaping of the Masoretic Psalter. Hensley proposes that the editors of the Psalter understood these covenants as a theological unity, whose common fulfilment centres on an anticipated royal successor to David. To test this hypothesis Hensley examines the Psalter's references and allusions to covenant(s) in light of editorial evidence. The book is split into three parts. Part I reassesses different kinds of editorial evidence, their implications, and their utility for discerning editorial intent. It also re-evaluates the Qumran Psalms hypothesis championed by Sanders, Wilson, and others. Part II engages in extensive survey work on references and allusions to covenant(s) in the Psalter, assessing the extent to which they gravitate around David. Hensley traces phraseological and intertextual allusions to covenant promises and obligations, providing the first survey of its kind on the subject of covenant in the Psalter. Part III then investigates a strong allusion to the Abrahamic covenantal promises in Ps 72:17 in the context of Book II of the Psalter, and the Psalter's fullest echoes of the "grace formula†? (Exod 34:6) in Psalm 86:15, 103:8, and 145:8 in the contexts of Books III, IV, and V respectively. Hensley shows that rather than the Davidic covenantal promises being "democratized,†? the promises and obligations of the pre-monarchic covenants are consistently "royalized†? throughout the Psalter and its books, depicting the anticipated Davidic figure as a Moses-like intercessor and mediator of covenant renewal, and the leader of a "new song†? for a "new exodus.†?
