Esteemed scholar, Alec Motyer, presents a salvation pledge on display in this introduction to Old Testament covenant theology

Signs, laws, sacrifices, kings, priests: How do they all fit together? Alec Motyer answers with five lectures that intricately trace God’s covenant from its origins in the narrative of Noah and Abraham, through the establishment of the law, towards its climax in Christ.

From the beginning of time, God has been making his ways and nature known to his people. Unpack the purpose of signs, make sense of Passover and look beyond the insufficient sacrifices and failing monarchy. Through approaching the Old Testament with a fresh appreciation of the covenant meta–narrative, the lines of covenant theology are seen to converge with salvation as their ultimate focal point.

Join Motyer on a journey that connects the dots across God’s carefully orchestrated redemptive history to glimpse a greater vision of the salvation masterplan brought to fulfilment by the promise–making, promise–keeping God

I have a rule that goes like this: anything written by Alec Motyer is worth reading. Covenant Foundations is no exception to that rule. … Motyer clearly, simply, and helpfully walks you through Scripture tracing out how God makes and keeps his promises in his covenants.
