Lesson 4


Passing between the pieces
Passing between the Pieces

  • Genesis 15

  • God told Abram to cut the animals in half and lay them opposite each other

  • God walked between the pieces of flesh and cut covenant with Abram

  • Circumcision:

  • Genesis 17:9-14 Sign of the Abrahamic Covenant

  • Outward expression of that covenant

  • Outward part of a man’s flesh closest to where his descendants come from.

  • No circumcision: cut off, broken God’s Covenant


Exodus 4 24 26
Exodus 4:24-26

  • Moses had not circumcised his son and God was about to kill him

  • Zipporah “cut covenant” and saved his life

  • God is very serious about His Covenant

  • I Samuel 20 Jonathan called on the Lord as his witness of the covenant between him and David

  • Failure to keep the covenant required the death of the one who broke it.

  • Ex. 24:1-11 Moses received the Covenant

  • He made sacrifices and divided the blood

  • Half on the altar and half on the people

  • Heb. 9:18-20 He sprinkled the people and the scroll

  • People said, “All that the Lord has said we will do”

  • This was a conditional covenant based on Israel’s obedience

  • Deut. 30:15-20 First generation of Israel out of Egypt broke Covenant: all died in the wilderness except for Joshua and Caleb

  • Second generation entered into Covenant of the Law

  • Parallel: broken bread and the animals’ bodies

  • I Cor. 11:18-34 The Lord’s Supper is to remember His death until He returns

  • I Cor. 11:30 Some of you are sick, weak and some have fallen asleep. This is death of the believer

  • This is NOT the same as condemnation for the unbeliever (Rom. 8:1)

Faith/Belief

  • Belief and faith are the same word in the Greek

  • Pistis meaning a firm conviction that results in a personal surrender and a conduct inspired by that surrender (Vines)

  • Believe is the verb form of faith

New Testament

  • Acts 6:7 Priests became obedient to the faith

  • If one has faith, then obedience is a by-product

  • Romans 2:8 and 2 Thess. 1:8

  • God’s wrath and indignation await those who don’t repent and obey the truth

  • Hebrews 3:18-19 Unbelief is disobedience
