Good Introduction to the Biblical Covenants  Apr 28, 2005
If anyone wants a brief introduction (and I mean BRIEF, only 32 pages) to the various covenants of the Bible, then this book will do. Contrary to what some might expect, this book is NOT an apologetic for Reformed covenant theology as outlined in the Westminster Confession of Faith. It is actually about the function and nature of the various historical covenants as presented in Scripture (i.e., Noahic, Abrahamic, Mosaic, Davidic, and New). Murray does not even touch upon the concept of the "covenant of works" in this short booklet (if one wants Murray's opinion on this matter check out his "Collected Writings" [Vol. 2]).

One of the more helpful discussions is Murray's discussion of the meaning of covenant (pp. 3-12). He does this to give the reader a good understanding of the term before explaining the nature of the covenants in Scripture. The key point in Murray's discussion of the various covenants is that the covenants (including the Mosaic!) are all covenants of grace (God being the establisher of each covenant apart from human cooperation). All subsequent covenants are merely amplifications and expansions of the preceding ones, even though all have the same grace-oriented matrix.

Another interesting point Murray makes is that all the covenants have a "promise-demand" structure attached to them. Though all the covenants spring from God's grace, they all contain "conditions" that the beneficiaries must meet in order to enjoy the promises of the covenant. This does not detract from the graciousness of the covenants, according to Murray, but merely points out that the nature of all covenants demand stipulations.

Murray's insistence that the Mosaic covenant is a covenant of grace and that all the promissory covenants contain a demand element makes him a maverick among traditional Reformed theologians. In fact, if put to its logical end, Murray dissolves the wall between law and gospel that is the hallmark of traditional Reformational theology. In short, in Murray's theology of the covenants, law and gospel lie more in continuity than in contrast (contra Luther). This may surprise (and even disappoint) those who are steeped in traditional Reformed theology as outlined in the WCF since Murray is considered one of the giants of conservative Presbyterianism in North America in the 20th century.

I have to agree with the critics of Murray's covenant theology that he perilously comes close to mixing law and gospel (when Scripture presents more of a contrast). Despite these questionable points, I would recommend this short work to anyone who wants to understand what the covenants in the Bible mean.
Brief Intro to Covenant Theology  Jun 19, 2000
John Murray gives a brief, but excellent summation of Covenant Theology. This booklet helps answer the question as to whether their is primarily continuity or discontinuity between the Old & New Testaments.

Murray begins by defining covenant and gives a brief historical overview of the rise of covenant theology. Then he delves in to the biblical and theological realm of the covenant. He surveys the Noahic, Abrahamic, Mosaic, Davidic, and New Covenant as found in Scripture.

He concludes that the covenant is a unified theme throughout Scripture which speeks of God's relation of grace between His creation.

Also recommended for a more in-depth study: O. Palmer Robertson's "The Christ of the Covenants."
