The new covenant
From Genesis to Revelation, one can trace in the Bible the development of humanity's concept of man's relationship to God. This relationship is really what life is all about. It explains one's identity or reason for being.
The book of Genesis relates the Lord's message to Abraham that he would "be a father of many nations and that God would establish His covenant with them and give them all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession." Gen. 17:4, 8. This appeared to be a guarantee to the people of Israel that they would have a national heritage forever. In succeeding years the Jewish people have accepted this promise as constituting their right to the land later called Palestine, including the city of Jerusalem. During the centuries of their dispersal to other places, many have looked longingly for a return to their homeland. But in a larger sense, we can see that in establishing His covenant among men, God was addressing all people, not only one particular nation or religion.
