Covenant - Brit ברית
Definition - The term 'covenant' signifies an agreement made between two parties and must be distinguished from related ideas such as 'testament' and 'contract'. Unlike a testament a covenant involves a personal response on the side of the second party to make it effective. Unlike a contract, however, it is not a mutually negotiated affair but is offered unilaterally by one side to the other.

|Abrahamic AGen. 15:7-21|
|Abrahamic BGen. 17:10|
|Davidic/Kingly2 Sam. 23:5|
|The Renewed CovenantJeremiah 31:31-34|
