As we have already mentioned, Hebrews has more occurrences of diatheke than in the rest of the New Testament.  This relative prominence of the covenant conception in Hebrews may be attributed to the authors’ preoccupation with the comparison with the old and with the new religious systems of Judaism and Christianity.  I mean it is natural that you would revert to the covenant concept to help you describe...

We have already looked at definitions of covenant and we have, or definitions of diatheke and berith, and the arguments over that translational controversy.  And we have looked at one passage in the New Testament in some detail, the passage in Hebrew 9, which is difficult to translate.  Many Bible translations will start in 9:15, with the word covenant, and they will switch to testament and then back...

I want to look at Jeremiah 31, because that is obviously the only passage in the prophetic literature which uses the terminology New Covenant.  That terminology of New Covenant becomes very, very significant in the New Testament itself.  It is picked up by the author of Hebrews, but it is also mentioned in the Last Supper narrative by the Lord Jesus Himself, as He explains the meaning of...

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Romans chapter 2.  I want to point your attention to two verses.  We are going to begin today by making some observations about dispensationalism and then we are going to give a rapid overview to the Davidic Covenant and especially the establishment of the house of David in II Samuel 7.  But first I...

The whole  area of the law of Moses and the economy of God. The Mosaic Covenant and how it relates to the Covenant of Grace, and especially to the New Testament, is one of the fundamental issues that underlies the difference between dispensationalism and Covenant Theology.  So bearing that in mind as we plow into this material today, I think it will help us understand the importance on...

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Colossians chapter 2, Colossians chapter 2.  We will begin reading in verse 8. 

“See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ. For in Him all the fullness of...

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Genesis chapter 17, Genesis chapter 17.  In Genesis chapter 17, in verse 1, we read, 

Now when Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am God Almighty; Walk before Me, and be blameless. And I will establish My covenant between Me and you, And I...

If you have your Bibles, turn with me to the book of Genesis chapter 6.  Genesis 6, beginning in verse 9. 

These are the records of the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his time; Noah walked with God. And Noah became the father of three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Now the earth was corrupt in the sight of God, and the...

And the Lord God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, cursed are you more than all cattle, and more than every beast of the field.  On your belly shall you go, and dust shall you eat all the days of your life.  And I will put enmity between you...

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to open with me to Genesis 1.  We read the passage last week, and we will look at it again.  In Genesis 1 we will focus on verse 24 and following.    

Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures after their kind: cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth after their kind”...

If you have your Bibles, please open to Genesis 1:24 as we read God's word.

Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures after their kind: cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth after their kind”; and it was so. And God made the beasts of the earth after their kind, and the cattle after their kind, and everything that creeps on the...

The study of Covenant Theology is a topic vital to pastoral ministry and, frankly, to Christian ministry of any kind.  And so I am convinced that the time that you put into your study will be well spent.  It will pay not only you dividends but the people of God whom you serve dividends for years to come.  Let’s hear God’s word in Hebrews chapter 6, we’ll begin...
