There are six major covenants: God’s covenants with Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, David and the New Covenant under Christ. The framework of all Biblical history is grounded in these six covenants. How our gracious and merciful God saved his sinful people from all their sins are encompassed in these covenants, beginning with the Fall of Adam and ending with our Lord Jesus Christ’s life, death, resurrection, ascension and Second Coming.
And these six covenants can be classed into two main covenants: the Covenant of Works with Adam before the Fall, and the Covenant of Grace after the Fall. The Covenant of Grace can be further divided into two main categories: the Old Covenant from the Fall to the incarnation of Christ, and the New Covenant after Christ’s incarnation. Finally, in the New Covenant, Christ fulfills all the provisions and promises God made to his chosen people in the Old Covenant.
