I’ve written a brief piece for Bible Study and the Christian Life, asking ‘What is a covenant?’
The word “covenant” gets used frequently in discussion about biblical content and theology. However, the meaning of the word is often assumed rather than discussed.
Many people will offer what they think are synonyms, like “promise,” or “agreement.” But while a covenant might include such things, they don’t really define what a covenant is.
So what is a covenant?
