1. How do God’s covenant promises determine our identity?
2. What was the significance of the new name that God gave Abraham? What is the new name that He gives us?
3. What was the purpose of God’s charge of circumcision to Abraham? What are some of the reasons He chose circumcision as the sign for those who followed the Lord?
4. What are conditional versus unconditional elements of God’s covenants with us?
5. Why are only those who are faithful to keep God’s covenant the ones who experience God’s blessings?
