The Mosaic Association is mentioned in a number of places in the Qur`an[Koran 2:63][Coran 2:83-84][Coran 2:93][Koran 4:154] in remembrance of the Jews, two tribes of whom lived in Medina during the time of Mohamed. The verses also mention certain commandments of the Decalogue and, in the words of God, warns the Jews that they do not dwell on it and that they are showing violence against the prophets – a group of them whom they have called liars and other prophets among them whom they have killed – [Coran 4:155][Quran 5:70], although they have agreed to keep them at the time of the covenant. The idea that these alliances were grantartartseins is also the basis of the similar language used in both. In the attention of Ashurbanipal, an Assyrian, to his servant Bulta, he describes Bulta`s loyalty with the phrase “kept the charge of my kinship.” Abraham also retained God`s responsibility in Genesis 26:4-5: “I will give all these lands to your descendants… I take care of it, and my loading, my commandments, my rules and my teachings.  After Sinai comes the next great development of the alliance with Nathan`s message to David (2 Sam 7; 1 J 17). David intends to build a “house” (i.e. temple) for God, but God promises to build a “house” (i.e. dynasty) for David. Neither 2 Sam 7 nor 1 J 17 explicitly describe God`s promise as a “covenant,” but several other texts (cf.
2 Sam 23, 5; 2 J 7, 18; 13, 5; Ps 89:3; Jer 33:21). Alliances are often initiated by an oath and can be of two types: grants or contracts. [Citation required] Grants are generally one-sided and unconditional covenants, such as those in which God unconditionally promises Noah (Genesis 9), Abraham (Genesis 15, Genesis 17) and David (2 Samuel 7:8ff). [Citation required] Bilateral covenants are generally conditioned by blessings for obedience and curses for disobedience as in deuteronomy 28 and 30. Christians see Jesus as the mediator of this new covenant, and that his blood shed at his crucifixion is the necessary blood of the covenant: as in all the covenants between God and man described in the Bible, the New Covenant is considered “a bond in the blood that is sovereignly managed by God.”  It has been theorized that the New Covenant is the Law of Christ, as was said in his Sermon on the Mountain.  An alliance in the broadest sense of the word and in the historical sense is a solemn promise to participate in or refrain from participating in a particular act. A contract is a type of agreement that corresponds to a contractual condition. The federal objector promises an alliance to do (confederation of the affirmative) or to do nothing (negative confederation). It`s literally a contract. In the Bible (see also the Bible), an agreement between God and his people, in which God makes promises to his people and generally requires some behavior on their part. In the Old Testament, God made agreements with Noah, Abraham and Moses. He promised Noah that he would never destroy the Earth again by a high tide.
He promised Abraham that he would become the ancestor of a great nation, provided that Abraham went to the place where God showed him and sealed the covenant by circumcizing all the men of the nation. To Moses, God said that the Israelites would reach the promised land, but had to obey the Mosaic Law. In the New Testament, God promised salvation to those who believe in Jesus (see also redemption). Weinfeld believes that the similar terminology and formulation of Abraham and David`s alliances can link to previous grants from the Netherlands, unlike the Mosaic Association, which Weinfeld says is an example of a Suzerainty contract. He went on to argue that the sentences about a “whole heart” or “with all the heart after me [God] crossed” strong parallels with the neo-Assyrian grant-language, as “passed with royalty”. He further argues that God uses prophetic metaphors in Jeremiah to say that David is adopted as a son.
