BC-109: THE COVENANTS, THE CROSS, THE BLOOD


About this course

One of the most important themes in Scripture is that of covenant. God is a covenant God, and we are His covenant people. The Cross is central to God's redemptive work and is the basis for the New Covenant. The Cross is God's wisdom and power demonstrated. Everything we receive as believers in Jesus Christ is because of the finished work of Christ on the Cross. The Blood is the sign and seal of the New Covenant, and we must understand the significance and power of the blood. As believers we need to live life as covenant people.

This course is designed to help us understand Biblical covenants, the provisions, and blessings of the new covenant we have with God established through the Cross of Jesus Christ and how to walk in our covenant with God. A powerful revelation that will help you in your life's journey!

This is an instructor-led course. Recordings of classroom lectures will be released weekly. Complete the objective type questions, quizzes and other assignments that are given as you progress through the course. It is recommended that you keep up with the lectures and assignment on a weekly basis. This course starts the week of Monday January 10, 2022 and will complete on or before Friday April 29, 2022.
