Noah: A Covenant with Humanity
We continue our study of the covenants God made with individuals and the nation of Israel throughout the Bible by looking at the very first time the word brit, covenant in Hebrew, appears in the Jewish Bible. Our Limmud study this month focuses on the covenant between God and Noah, known as the Noahic Covenant. While often overlooked, this covenant is crucial to both the Jewish and Christian faith narratives, as it is both binding today for all humanity as well as the foundational building block for all other covenants that follow.
In our study, we will learn about why God chose Noah to assume this important role as the “second father” of all humanity. We’ll take a closer look at the covenant itself and its repercussions, as well as the significance of the rainbow that was chosen as an eternal sign of this agreement.
Join us as we explore the meaning of the covenant in Noah’s time and the significance of this binding agreement with God in our world today.Download Now
