This study reflects upon the narrative manner in which the covenants are presented in the Old Testament. The covenants are portrayed with considerable narrative and architectonic art. Through a study of the relevant covenant narratives, one is enabled to see better the significance of God’s covenant-making procedure in the different covenants. This article focuses on the covenant with Adam/creation (Genesis 1:1-Genesis 2:3), the [Noahic covenant]] (Genesis 9:1-17), the Abrahamic covenant (Genesis 15), the Mosaic covenant (Exodus 20-Exodus 24), and the Davidic covenant (2 Samuel 7:1-17).
