How do you believe the Bible all fits together? Your answer to that question will influence the way you read and interpret its different parts. It also affects your understanding of Jesus, salvation, the church, mission, and your identity as one of God’s redeemed people. Unfortunately, some have created an artificial division between the Old and New Testaments because they have overlooked a fundamental part of the Biblical narrative, which in turn affects their reading of Scripture.
In Forgotten Covenant, R.L. Watson helps to recover this neglected detail as he shows that the Bible contains one continuous narrative, driven by the fulfilment of the Covenant Promises made with Abraham. By reading, you will gain not only a deepened understanding of how the Abrahamic Covenant gives a map for God’s plan of redemption, but you will also be able to recognise its influence on:
- The Exodus,
- The occupation of the Promised Land,
- The exile and return,
- The person and work of Christ,
- The spread of the Gospel, and
- The final, eternal condition.
More than that, you will be encouraged by the faithfulness and sovereignty of God, be better equipped to understand the Scriptures more deeply, and have a greater appreciation for the significance of that man called Abraham.
