The Abrahamitic covenant

Name Tutor Course Date Religion A covenant is an agreement between two or more parties. It can either be conditional or unconditional. A conditional is a covenant that is binding and therefore everyone among the parties has to do something to make the covenant a success. On the other hand an unconditional covenant is one that only one party has to do something and the others are dependent on the party that is responsible for the covenant.
