Covenants in the Bible - Introduction
Scholars point to seven main covenants in the Bible. Three of them are covenants God made with Israel as a nation. These are often called the unconditional covenants because they are not dependent on Israel’s obedience. The conditional covenants have the guarantee that God will fulfill His part when human requirements are met.
The word covenant (berit in Hebrew and diathéké in Greek) means “an agreement” or “an arrangement.”
