      • Why study covenant theology?
        • 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
        • Considers and impacts various branches of theology, thus it is important that we carefully consider it and understand it
      • Key terms/concepts
    • Covenant - A commitment guaranteed by a solemn oath, with the threat of [divine] sanctions
    • Typology - The study of analogical correspondence among revealed truths about persons, events, institutions, and other things within the historical framework of God’s special revelation, which, from a retrospective view, are of a prophetic nature and are escalated in their meaning (Greg Beale)
    • Federal Head - One covenant representative whom God deals with and who connects all those under his headship to the covenant
    • Covenants of Works - Covenants in which promised blessings are received on the basis of works done
    • Covenants of Grace - Covenants in which promised blessings are received on the basis of free grace as a gift
    • Kingdom/Dominion - Covenants delegate authority, grant dominion over a particular sphere
      • What makes a covenant?
    • Sanctions - Threats that enforce and ensure the fulfillment of covenant commitments
    • Precepts - The covenant law/obligations
