History is Covenantal
“The whole course of the biblical narrative is structured as a dialogue: God speaks, man responds. The course of subsequent history is the result of man’s response to God’s word. When a man disobeys, there is curse. When you’ll base, there is blessing. So biblical history is covenantal. The covenant Lord sets forth his will, and history describes the covenantal sanctions.
So every page of the Bible teaches or illustrates the authority of God’s word. Everything that human beings do or say is your response to God’s word or a consequence of their response.”
-John M. Frame, The Doctrine of the Christian Life, 56
