Rooted: Covenant

Season 2 of ROOTED focuses on COVENANT – a fundamental theme that runs throughout the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation! At times the idea of covenant is up front and central, with the biblical story providing great detail of the way God makes covenants with different people at different times. Elsewhere the outworking of covenant is seemingly in the background. But whether it seems prominent or not, we can be assured that covenant really matters, all the time! The God of the Bible is a covenant-making, covenant-keeping and covenant-enabling God. It is His way with mankind.

In this new series we’ll be looking to: define biblical covenant; contrast covenant theology and dispensationalism; explore the meaning of the amazing word hesed (‘covenant-love’ and so much more); look at some of the key features of each of the major Old Testament covenants; learn lessons from the patriarchs and the kings; and understand the purpose of the Law… Then: see how Jesus fulfils the old covenants and establishes the new covenant; consider our covenantal responsibilities; explain the apostolic understanding of ‘Israel’; discover the dynamic realities of the covenant meal; see the way that marriage is only fully enjoyed and expressed in the context of covenant; and look at the vital role of covenant-love and loyalty amongst leadership teams.

Digging-deeper to study the nature and purpose of the biblical covenants will reap multiple benefits! It will give us wonderful insights into the nature and purpose of God; provide a great overview and perspective of the whole biblical story and timeline; deepen our love of Christ and His transforming work; reveal the ever-expansive, world-embracing purpose of God; and trigger many practical implications and areas of personal growth!…
