Covenants in the Old Testament by Caitlyn Crick

What is a covenant?

A covenant is a formal agreement/alliance made between religious people and God. It is centred around the Abrahamic religion. In terms of non-religious covenants it is just a sacred agreement. For e.g. marriage is a non-religious covenant and baptism is a religious one.

When you make a covenant it is to be taken seriously and not broken. It is through a covenant that you know you can trust someone. You trust that when you get married your partner will always be there for you, same as God trusts we will make good choices through his covenants. Covenants are very important and through them you know you can trust someone and are trusted.

Even though the 10 Commandments come from the Old Testament and were written for the Israelites, they are still in use today. The last five commandments are part of common sense and the law which is upheld by everyday people. "Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not lie and do not be jealous of what others have" are all things we abide by in our everyday lives. Meaning the 10 Commandments are part of everyday society as well as in the church and religious communities.
