What does a covenant look like in Scripture? Is “covenant” something imposed onto Scripture, or does it organically arise from Scripture? What is the covenant of works, the covenant of grace, and the covenant of redemption? How does covenant theology help us to make sense of the whole Old Testament? What is the role of the Mosaic covenant in the administration of the covenant of grace? Is there any difference between the Abrahamic and Mosaic covenants? What is the relationship of those covenants to the New Covenant?

On this special episode of Office Hours, R. Scott Clark will discuss these important issues and more with Michael Brown and Zach Keele, co-authors of Sacred Bond: Covenant Theology Explored.
