The Bible is often termed the Old Covenant and the New Covenant. When Christians take communion, or the Eucharist, they often recite the words of Jesus: ÔThis is the blood of the new covenant. But what exactly does the term covenant mean for followers of Jesus? Covenants are essentially a legal agreements between two entities, which are then sealed or confirmed by the swearing of an oath. This book provides some insights into the meaning of oath and covenant gleaned from certain episodes from Israel's history, particularly the covenant between Joshua and the Gibeonites. These insights help us relate to how covenant was understood in ancient Israel (and later by Jesus and His Jewish followers).
