Examples of word covenant
Christians believe that it records a Â“new covenant, Â” or Â“new testament, Â” that fulfills and completes GodÂ’s Â“old covenantÂ” with the Hebrews, described in the Old Testament.
Hence, besides, it is doing no service to the interpretation of the Scriptures, to attempt to shew that in the passage of the Epistle to the Hebrews,  where the covenant is represented as a testament, either that the term Î´Î¹Î±Î¸Î·Ï‡Î· there, must have only the meaning _testament_, or that it must be rendered _covenant_ exclusively throughout.
Accept the Sabbatarian definition of the term covenant, and it legitimately follows that none were ever in that covenant save those who held converse with Jehovah, through Moses, saying, â€œAll these things will we observe and do.â€
