Overview

The Bible is a composition of several covenants or agreements which the Lord initiated with Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses (Old Covenant), David, and Christians (New Covenant). Therefore, since the Bible is a Book of covenants in order to understand the message of the Bible, it is necessary to understand the covenants.

Covenants contain four categories: Wisdom—Promise and Foolishness—Curse. The Wisdom and Promise Study Bible illustrates by the technique of color coding the contrast between Wisdom and Foolishness and the relationship between Wisdom—Promise and Foolishness—Curse.

As you read The Wisdom and Promise Study Bible, instead of seeing black letters on white back ground, you will see green, red, blue, and plumb words, phrases, sentences, and paragraphs identifying Wisdom—Promise and Foolishness—Curse. You will probably be as surprised as I was at how much of the Bible is made up of the four categories. You can see this in the following ways:
•Exhorting the people to obey the commandments and receive the promises
•Warning the people against disobeying the commandments and receiving the curses
•Commentary on the people who obeyed the commandments and received the promises
•Commentary on people who disobeyed the commandments and received the curses

The Wisdom and Promise Study Bible will also help you search for wisdom as for hidden treasure, maintain the proper balance between wisdom and promises, always associate faith with faithfulness, choose the way of wisdom and life, avoid the way of foolishness and death, delight yourself in the Lord (Isa. 58:13, 14), and receive the desires of your heart (Ps. 37:4)—continual fellowship with God our Father and Lord Jesus Christ (John 14:15-18, 21, 23).
