  The Biblical Covenant and Christian Worship - by Richard C. Leonard, Ph.D., Laudemont Ministries
Although the concept of the covenant in general has continuously informed Christian theology, especially the Reformed tradition, the distinctive structure and terminology of the biblical covenant were recovered only in the twentieth century through archaeological discoveries.
But covenant structure and terminology are equally evident in the psalms of petition, in which the servant pledges his commitment to the great King, and appeals to him in turn to honor the agreement between them.
The Lord's covenant is with a people, the "royal priesthood." Christian worship is corporate, an action of the body, in which each worshiper has a role according to his or her gifts, but in which the focus is always upon the action of the community as the servant of the Lord.

 Worship of Christ and the Biblical Covenant | TheResurgence
Although the concept of the covenant in general has continuously informed Christian theology, especially in the Reformed tradition, the distinctive structure and terminology of the biblical covenant were recovered only in this century through archaeological discoveries.
The periodic affirmation of the covenant in festal worship is part of this ongoing struggle, the witness of the faithful to the sovereignty of the great King.
First, the Lord’s covenant is with a people, the “royal priesthood.” Christian worship is corporate, an action of the body, in which each worshiper has a role according to his or her gifts, but in which the focus is always upon the action of the community as the servant of the Lord.

 Covenant: The Christian Marriage Covenant: Resources - FamilyLife - Strengthening families, marriages and relationships
Both popular and scholarly discussions of the biblical aspect of covenant marriage entail comparisons and contrasts between biblical understandings of covenants and contracts.
Marriage as a covenant, therefore, should not be viewed as a contract that can be broken or set aside simply upon the mutual consent of spouses or upon the unilateral consent of one spouse because of irreconcilable differences or an irretrievable breakdown in the relationship.
Theologically speaking, covenant marriage raises the question of what God’s relationship is to marriage and to a couple in marriage.

 Quodlibet Online Journal: The Great I-AM of God in Biblical Covenant Relationship with His People in the Old Testament ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-22)
But still the Biblical Theology movement's insistence that no identity is to be thought between the transcendent and divine freedom of God as He is in Himself and who He is in His acts in history appears a tragic mistake.
There are, in fact, some today who would suggest that Biblical covenant cannot be employed at all to exegete the Old Testament, while others simply continue to struggle to apprehend its significance for the development of a theology that might overcome the apparent fragmentation in all these efforts.
Covenant relationship as taught us in the Bible is, however, a reality and not merely an idea, and when we lose our grasp of it, history itself seems but an idea to us.
