God redeemed Israel from its bondage in Egypt and brought the nation to Himself at Mount Sinai in order to enter into formal covenant union with His chosen "son." This sermon introduces the Sinai Covenant, examining first God's preliminary charges to Israel that revealed the purpose and significance of the covenant. It then considers the content of the covenant itself. Of interest is the way the Sinai Covenant contributed to God's developing revelation of His redemptive purpose in Christ which has its ultimate goal in the recovery of sacred space - God's dwelling with men. This purpose was first implied in His oath in Eden (Genesis 3:15), and is to reach its consummation in the summing up of everything in the heavens and earth in Christ.
