        • Properly understanding covenant gives us deeper grounds for greater assurance of our faith, and a greater appreciation of God’s wisdom and faithfulness
        • Covenant is the way that God relates to man and the way that the members of the Godhead relate to one another
        • Helps us to see the fullness, scope, continuity, authority, and applicability of all of Scripture
        • Helps to provide a framework for understanding the whole of Scripture in its context
      • What is covenant theology?
        • The study and explanation of the united purpose of God in all history past, present , and future (Samuel Renihan)
        • A framework for biblical interpretation, informed by exegetical, biblical, and systematic theology, that recognizes that the redemptive history revealed in Scripture is explicitly articulated through a succession of covenants, thus providing an organizing principle for biblical theology (Ligon Duncan)
        • Strong emphasis on the historical development and outworking of God’s redemptive plan
