Quotation #1 of the Readings does not mention the word “covenant.” Explain the meaning of this quotation in relation to the Covenant.
What is God’s purpose for humanity?
What is the relationship between that purpose and God’s will?
What is the role of the Covenant in this relationship?
How could you explain the Covenant to someone who claims there is no Covenant between God and humanity? (That is, to someone who believes there is no relationship requiring humanity to act in a certain way to receive divine blessings.)
