Theme: Covenant with God

This quarter considers the major covenants that God makes with people on behalf of the earth and humanity. Beginning with Noah, God promises goodness toward creation. Similar commitments are made with Abram, Phinehas, and Ezekiel. Ultimately, the covenant forms the foundation for the coming Messiah and salvation for the world.

Unit 1: September 

Signs of God's Covenants:

The four lessons in this unit are drawn from Genesis and Ezekiel, celebrating four signs of God's covenant. Promising to renew the cycle of seasons. God creates the rainbow as a permanent reminder of the covenant with every living thing. Circumcision is the sign of the covenant with Abraham and the Sabbath is the sign of the covenant with Israel at Mount Sinai. The last sign is the Spirit-filled heart.. 

Unit 2: October

Called into covenant with God:

Five lessons drawn from Genesis, Exodus, 2 Samuel and Nehemiah illustrate God's partnership with people who respond and agree to obey His voice. God enters into covenant with Abraham, Moses, and David to work through history, establishing a kingdom that will ultimately bring forth the Messiah. Based on covenant with God, Israel is chosen as His special people.

Unit 3: November

An Everlasting Covenant:

The four lessons in this unit are down from Numbers, 1 Samuel, Jeremiah, Hebrews, and 1 Corinthians and examine the components of the covenant God makes with the priest Phinehas and the divine promise to Israel through the prophet Jeremiah. The unconditional divine promises are to maintain a perpetual priesthood, forgive the unfaithful, and establish a new covenant with God's people. God seals this covenant of pure grace through Christ as mediator and by writing the law in the hearts of His people.
