We’ve been following the covenant promises of God from their inception in Genesis 3:15 through the Abrahamic covenant of Genesis 12:1-3. Many Christians today believe that the Abrahamic covenant was a covenant of grace while the Sinaitic covenant is a covenant of law. Is that understanding correct? Did God change His mind after Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and make a covenant that moved from promise to works? Or was obedience to God a call to a much more intimate life with God and a further fulfilment of the promise to Abraham that he and his offspring would be a universal blessing to all the peoples of the world? We’ll explore that question and how it can impact our lives as Christians in the world today.
