Description


"Henebury shows how the covenants relate to God's ways and purposes for his people and all peoples. Through it all he] lets the Old Testament speak for itself and does not "pre-interpret" it according to any "pre-conceived" theology of the New Testament. The results of this method, in particular his insights on the place of Christ in this account are especially helpful." - Kevin D. Zuber, The Master's Seminary. Why does God make covenants? That question spurred a twelve year-long study which produced this book and the "Biblical Covenantalism" it portrays. The Words of the Covenant: A Biblical Theology takes the oaths God took seriously at face value and tracks their development through the OT. What results is a fascinating and compelling framework for understanding both what God is going to do with His creation, and how the Figure of the Messiah, the coming King, is at the center of the unfolding of God's "Creation Project." This work presents a thorough exposition of God's covenants with Noah, Abraham, Moses, Phinehas, and David, showing how they all converge on the New covenant in Jesus Christ, and emerge literally fulfilled in the Kingdom of God. Dr. Henebury deliberately interacts with a wide range of scholarship to demonstrate and ground his assertions. God means what He says in His covenants, and He wants us to pay attention to them and trust them. This book is Volume 1 of a two-volume whole Bible Biblical Theology. It is subtitled Old Testament Expectation. Paul Martin Henebury M. T.
