A Covenant with God

Post  Samuel Hebert on Sun Oct 02, 2011 10:46 pm

the Israelite are monotheistic, they believe in one true God. These types of believes changed until know. before they worshiped a lot of gods. a lot of Egyptians pharaoh Ikhnaton spoke only of a single powerful god. They believed that praying to god would save from their enemies.the also believed that gods made covenant.

The covenant that Abraham (founder of Judaism) made with god was that as long as his people worshiped him and only him, he would protect them from evil. Which I find strange, because why did god not prevent the Egyptians from enslaving the Jewish people in the first place. Anyway as Moses was taking the Jewish people to their homeland after a forty year walk to escape the Egyptians the Jewish people broke the covenant. They got drunk, made a gold calf, and were worshiping it!

I found on the internet a covenant called The Abrahamic covenant, and I believe it is used in Israel. It is also known as the "Covenant Between the Parts". It is a commandment for Brit milah in Judaism. There is also another covenant called The Abrahamic Covenant of Isaac. From Isaac the Covenant passed to Jacob and from Jacob the Covenant passed to Joseph and then to his son Ephraim.
