Jesus Is Faithful: Their Covenant Relationship into the Old Testament

A covenant ended up being founded with Abraham (Genesis 15, 17), confirmed through their son Isaac (Genesis 26:3), and reaffirmed through Isaac’s son Jacob (renamed Israel) and their descendants forever (Genesis 28:13).
As an element of this agreement, God decided to be faithful and promised to create the country of Israel aside as his people that are holyLeviticus 20:26; Deuteronomy 7:6; Deuteronomy 26:18-19). In doing this, they certainly were instructed to consecrate on their own into the Lord and alone serve him (Exodus 20:2-6; Deuteronomy 6:13).
