• make sure each paragraph is a unit, with its logic and structure.

Use the following criteria:
• There should be a posed research statement at the beginning of the paper. A research statement is the paper’s central argument in a single sentence. The research statement should answer the research question.
• The introductory paragraph should introduce the research question. In the introductory paragraph, also briefly explain how to answer the research question and a summary of the paper’s central arguments. The Introduction section should not be more than 10% (1 page) of the paper.
• Format the paper and use the ‘Style’ function in Word document for a professional presentation
• The essay should have an introduction (10%), body paragraphs (80%) and a conclusion (10%). The introduction should have a brief description of what you will be covering and how you are going to do it. The main body should have a description and an analysis of the issues.
• Structure the essay on each level – (1) the whole essay level (e.g. introduction, body, and conclusion); (2) paragraph level and (3) sentence level.
• Make sure each paragraph is a unit, with its logic and structure. Have a concluding paragraph.
• Write in complete sentences; avoid dangling modifiers.
• Use simple, straightforward language. Explain the new terms when introduced (e.g. ijtihad). Do not use colloquial language and contractions (e.g. ‘didn’t’, ‘cannot’).
• Avoid plagiarism at all costs! (Turnitin will also pick this up).
• Have citations on every page. However, avoid long quotations in the research paper but paraphrase ideas in your own words. Use direct quotes to prove an argument rather than to give information. Reference all the sources appropriately.
• Follow the Harvard citation reference and format strictly.
• Do not exceed the word limit/ page limit.
• Edit the paper thoroughly before submitting it. Check spelling, punctuation and grammar. Check that you have followed all the above guidelines.

Robertson tells his readers that “the newness of the new covenant must be appreciated more fully.”

Chapters 8 and 9 to an insightful discussion on the Law and Mosaic covenant. Robertson emphasizes the Mosaic Law and covenant “must not be confused with the original covenant of works made with Adam,” e.g., in contrast to the covenant of works the Mosaic “law code” contained the “provision of sacrifice in the event of sin.”[14] Next, in Chapter 10, Robertson discusses the Davidic covenant, i.e., the promise that “David’s house, kingdom and throne are established forever (2 Sam. 7:16).”[15] Robertson elaborates and explains that “God tells David that his descendant who rules after him will be designated as God’s own son: ‘I will be his father, and he will be my son.’”[16] The consistent testimony of the New Testament it is Jesus Christ “the Messiah of David” who is God’s own Son who “sits on God’s throne, which is David’s throne.”[17]
Robertson concludes his book with three significant chapters. In Chapter 11, he discusses the New Covenant and how Christ is the fulfillment of all the promises of the former divine covenants. The New Covenant is “the last covenant” because “that which God has intended all along in redemption” will be accomplished in the New Covenant.[18] In Chapter 12, Robertson gives helpful suggestions for tracing continuity from the former covenants into the New Covenant. Robertson explains, “Balance must be found between continuity and newness in the relation of the old covenant to the new.”[19] There are both contrasting as well as continuous aspects of the old and new covenant, but the contrast is “drastic” which means “the new covenant must not be seen merely as a renewal of the old covenant.”[20] The New Covenant is definitively and meaningfully different than the old. Robertson tells his readers that “the newness of the new covenant must be appreciated more fully.” [21] This newness is most appreciated when we study the scriptures of the Old and New Testament and understand and appreciate how the “new covenant completes the redemption promised under the old.”[22] In the final chapter, Robertson surveys each of the divine covenants and explains how each “covenant highlights the majesty and might of the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.”[23] As mentioned earlier, it is Robertson’s contention that “the covenant magnifies the cross.”[24] Robertson throughout this short book demonstrates precisely how the divine covenants magnify the cross.
I know this is a lot but I didn’t want to buy the book. Just write on what I posted here and use the bible to answer the questions. I had to be a little creative.
In addition, From your reading in Covenants (by O. Palmer Robertson), write a 2-3 page reflection paper on the book. Please be sure to reflect on what you learned and what you can apply to your life.
Requirements: Times New Roman, 12 point font, double-spaced, Chicago or Turabian format with footnotes, 2-3 pages; please be sure to interact with and cite Scripture.
