ABRAHAMIC COVENANT



Genesis 12:1-3 El Shaddai [God] initiated His covenant with Abram when he was living in Ur of the Chaldeans, promising land, descendants, and a world-wide blessing.
Genesis 12:4, 5 Abram went with his family to Haran, lived there until he left at the age of 75 for the land of Canaan with his wife and nephew Lot
Genesis 13:14-17 Lot and Abram separate; God again promises the land to Abram and his descendants
Genesis 15:1-21 The Covenant is ratified when God passes between the three kinds of animals that Abram sacrificed and laid before El Shaddai.
Genesis 17:1-27 When Abram is 99 the covenant is renewed and his name is changed from Abram [exalted father] to Abraham [father of a multitude]. God promises a son by Sarah through whom the covenant will extend. The sign of the covenant as circumcision is established for all males from the 8th day of birth.
Genesis 22:15-18 The Binding of Isaac: confirmation of the covenant through Abraham's obedience: "and in your descendants all the nations of the earth shall find blessing..."


The Abrahamic Three-Fold Covenant was foundational to all other Biblical Covenants between Yahweh and His people:

As New Covenant believers we become the heirs of Abraham: Romans 9:6-8 "For not all Israelites are true Israelites nor are all Abraham's descendants his children, but as Scripture says, 'through Isaac shall your descendants be called.' That means that it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God; it is the children of the promise who are to be considered descendants."

Jacob's prophecy in Genesis 49:10-11 "The scepter shall not pass from Judah, nor the ruler's staff from between his feet, until tribute be brought him [until Shiloh come]*. And the peoples render him obedience. He tethers his donkey to the vine, to its stock the foal of his she-donkey.** He washes his clothes in wine, his robes in the blood of the grape."

*Note: John 9:7 translates the Greek word "Siloam" [in Hebrew = "Shiloh"], as "the one who has been sent";.
**Also see Zechariah 9:9-11 and Matthew 21:1-9; Mark 11:1-11; Luke 19:28-38.
