Best Answer

There are three covenants. Two which God made with Abraham (Genesis ch.15 and Genesis ch.17), and one with Abraham's Israelite descendants in the time of Moses after the Exodus.

  • 1) In Genesis ch.15, the Covenant Between the Parts:
a) God informs Abraham of future events (the Egyptian exile)

b) God promises the land of Canaan (Israel) to Abraham's descendants

c) The covenant is finalized through a demonstration of God's presence (see Genesis 15:7-9 and 15:17).

  • 2) In Genesis ch.17, the covenant of circumcision:
a) The promises of many descendants (17:2,3) and of inheriting the land of Canaan are repeated (17:8), but the main thing in this covenant is the promise that God will be the God of Abraham (17:7, 17:8).

b) God promises that Abraham and Sarah will have a son (17:15-16), whom they will name Isaac (17:19) and who will be the continuation of God's covenant with Abraham (17:21).

c) The covenant itself is manifested through circumcision, for Abraham and his descendants (17:10).

  • 3) The covenant between God and the Israelite nation (see Exodus ch.19 and ch.24), was made in the time of Moses, with Moses serving as the messenger.
This covenant is one of obedience, to listen to God's voice (Exodus 19:5), which will include the entire Torah (24:12). God, for His part, promised to treasure the Israelites (Exodus 19:5, Deuteronomy 26:16-19). The covenant was manifested through God's giving the Ten Commandments (Exodus ch.19-20), and was finalized (on our part) through the offerings described in Exodus ch.24.

There are three covenants. Two were between God and Abraham (Genesis ch.15 and ch.17).

  • In Genesis 15:
a) God informed Abraham of the Egyptian exile
b) God promises the land of Canaan (Israel) to Abraham
a) The promises of many descendants (17:2,3) and of inheriting Canaan are repeated (17:8).
b) God will be the God of Abraham (17:7, 17:8).
c) Abraham and Sarah will have a son (17:15-16), Isaac (17:19), who will continue God's covenant (17:21).
d) Circumcision, for Abraham and his descendants (17:10).

The third covenant was with Abraham's Israelite descendants in the time of Moses. Link: More about Moses

The full text of the third covenant is actually the Torah itself, because it lists all our commands and beliefs. That is why the Torah is called The Book of the Covenant.
