Relation of Christ to the eight covenants, from Scofield Reference Notes (1917)

(Note: Online, interactive quizzes with automatic scoring for these topics from Scofield are available; surf to the index of quizzes or review quiz on this topic.)

The relation of Christ to the eight covenants is as follows:

(1) To the Edenic Covenant, Christ, as the “second Man,” the “last Adam” 1 Corinthians 15:45-47 takes the place over all things which the first Adam lost ; Colossians 2:10; Hebrews 2:7-8.

(2) He is the “Seed of the woman” of the Adamic Covenant Genesis 3:15; John 12:31; 1 John 3:8; Galatians 4:4; Revelation 20:10 and fulfilled its conditions of toil Mark 6:3 and obedience.

(3) As the greatest son of Shem, in Him was fulfilled supremely the promise to Shem in the Noahic Covenant. Colossians 2:9.

(4) He is the “Seed to whom the promises were made” in the Abrahamic Covenant; the son of Abraham obedient unto death Genesis 22:18; Galatians 3:16; Philippians 2:8.

(5) He lived sinlessly under the Mosaic covenant and bore for us its curse. Galatians 3:10-13.

(6) He lived obediently as a Jew in the land under the Palestinian Covenant, and will yet perform it gracious promises Deuteronomy 28:1-30:9.

(7) He is the “Seed,” “Heir,” and “King” under the Davidic Covenant Matthew 1:1; Luke 1:31-33.

(8) His sacrifice is the foundation of the New Covenant Matthew 26:28; 1 Corinthians 11:25.

1 Corinthians 15:45-47

45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. 46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. 47 The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.
