A covenant (Hebrew berith, Greek diatheke) is a legal agreement between two or more parties. The word "covenant(s)" occurs 284 times in the Old Testament (as found in the New American Standard Bible). "Covenant(s)" occurs 37 times in the New Testament, which gives a total of 321- 342 occurrences. Must be a very critical subject don't ya think?
"Covenant isn't close to God's Heart, "COVENANT" IS GOD'S HEART! Just when I thought I couldn't love Him more, I began studying the 8 covenants and the rest was history... I actually felt like I was "Born Again" Again!" Douglas C. Hoover Check it out for yourself at: http://WhatIsCovenant.com
