Wright attempts to tie the old Christian churches role in with OT account of the coming of the Messiah. There again, we see evidence of purpose of Jesus and his ultimate role to restore Israel to prominence and return them to the land that God had promised them. Zechariah 9:9 is evidence that there will be one that will arise and show favour to Israel We that Wright points out how Israel will be used by God will enact is salvation and judgment. The NT, as well John the Baptist is used to set the stage for Jesus by preaching about the one that is greater than him. He preached repentance to the nations to prepare for the coming.
This is why God created a universe fit for human life, and why he laid down guidelines for how to live our lives. According to Christianity, each one of us is created for communion with God; God wants to know us, to love us, and to rejoice with us. Examples in the Bible are Proverbs 19: 21 and Ephesians 3: 20. The most basic principle of the Christian moral life is the awareness that every person bears the dignity of being made in the image of God. He has given us an immortal soul and through the gifts of intelligence and reason enables us to understand the order of things established in his creation.

Conclusion………………………………………….………………………….... 9 Bibliography…………………………………………………………………….. 10 Introduction Abraham is seen as one of the most recognized characters in the Bible. The Abrahamic covenant is the first covenant that pertains to the rule of God. The covenant solely depended on God, who obliges himself to make the promises in the covenant come to pass. From the fall of Adam and Eve through the flood, God watched the human condition worsen by the increase of sin, but through the covenant with Abraham, God was going to establish a people who He could channel the knowledge of Himself and as a result bring salvation to the entire world. God through the covenant with Abraham made a way for the entire humanity to be blessed and in his encounter with God, Abraham developed an unwavering faith that is worth emulating by all who claim to be sons and daughters of God.
The Jews vowed to worship only God and to obey his laws. In return, God would reward them by having them as his “chosen people”. This meant that he would show favoritism to the Jews over all other nations. This covenant was first made between Abraham and God when Abraham showed that he would follow God’s laws without question. He was willing to give up his one and only son at God’s request.
Reason being was that God said “No One is Righteous” The righteousness is given through faith. Gentiles and Jews have no difference between them for being have sinned and fell short of the glory of God and they are all justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. Once we have been justified through the faith that the Romans believed they have peace with God and through whoever gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. Paul Stated also that man is decedent of Adam and all men are sinful. Sin is passed down from generation as well as death.

The transition from judges to a king effectively begins with Samuel as Hindson tells us that God “chooses to confirm Samuel as his divine spokesperson”. Hindson continues on page 162 with “God used Samuel to anoint Israel’s first two kings
