For many years, Christians and non-Christians alike have struggled to reconcile the seemingly conflicting depictions of God found in the Bible. How can the legalistic punishing God of the Old Testament also be the loving father that Jesus revealed in the New Testament? The key to answering this question lies in understanding that the Bible is the story of God's covenantal relationship with humanity, and this story plays out through five major covenants. Once you understand these five major covenants, the entire Bible will finally make sense! Even more crucially, the character of God, and the relationship he invites you to have with him, will become wonderfully clear.
