Development of Covenant Theology
First appearance of covenant (Berit): Genesis 6
Genesis 9: God’s covenant with Noah
Abrahamic Covenant Genesis 12:1-3: Emphasis on promise, two reaffirmations (Genesis 15 and 17) of a son and of an Heir
Mosaic Covenant: Covenant of the Law, sign: Sabbath
Davidic: covenant of kingship (2 samuel 7)
Jeremiah: Lawyer of the Covenant, anticipation and prophecy of the new covenant
Jesus: Luke 22:20, covenant sign is the communion, fulfills Mosaic (Sermon on the mount), Davidic (Lineage), Abrahamic (sacrifice of a son), Adamic (Christ is the second adam), all covenants build on each other and end in Christ. No covenant was wrong but merely incomplete.
