December 4: Genesis 8:20-9:17

Welcome to The Intentional Podcast. Setting aside time for prayer and Scripture meditation can change the posture of your day. Thank you for spending a few minutes with us as we turn our attention to what Jesus has for the day ahead.

OPENING PRAYER:  

Before you read the Scripture for today, limit the distractions around you and spend time in prayer. Spend time thanking God for the opportunity we have to spend with Him through the reading of His Word.

SCRIPTURE:

Genesis 8:20-9:17

HISTORICAL CONTEXT:

Let’s talk about Covenants…

  • There are three major types of covenants: Royal Grants, Parity, and Suzerian-Vassal. 
  • The Noahic covenant is a Royal Grant covenant that is unconditional. God makes commitments to Noah, but asks nothing of Noah in returns. 
  • The Noahic covenant is unique because it includes “every living creature,” not just humans or Noah’s family specifically. 

REFLECTION QUESTIONS:
