About-

In biblical and theological studies, fresh perspectives and novel approaches can breathe new life into familiar subjects. Remembering the Covenants in Song reconsiders the Abrahamic and Mosaic covenant relationship through the unique biblical and canonical lens of a postexilic song. In Psalm 105, the psalmist’s intriguing intertextual engagement with both of Israel’s great covenant traditions provides a rare glimpse into the covenant-understanding of a postexilic biblical writer interacting with the Torah.

Remembering the Covenants in Song entails an intertextual study of Psalm 105 that brings the psalmist’s rhetorical design and covenant references into a dialogue with the Torah’s seminal covenant texts. The examination of the psalmist’s use of covenant references and allusions represents an innovative approach to assessing the rhetorical significance of intertextuality in biblical writings.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Interpreters often view the Abrahamic and Mosaic covenants as unconditional and conditional, respectively. But the matter is not this simple. Grounding his thesis in an exegetical-rhetorical analysis of Psalm 105, which refers to both covenants, Young-Sam Won shows they are complementary. In tandem they define Yahweh’s relationship to the covenant community as having both promissory and obligatory dimensions. Won’s fresh approach makes a significant advance in our understanding of these foundational covenants.”

—Robert B. Chisholm Jr., Dallas Theological Seminary



“This is an important book on an important topic. Young-Sam Won has helped us understand the relationship between the Abrahamic and Mosaic Covenants, and its significance for biblical theology overall. His intertextual, exegetical, and theological analysis of Psalm 105 shows how these covenants work together in an ongoing way to give shape to God’s redemptive work in history and in our lives today.”

—Richard E. Averbeck, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School



“In this volume, Won has provided an academically rigorous study employing covenant studies, redemptive history, and biblical hermeneutics. Those who are interested in how these disciplines intersect within the context of the Book of Psalms should consult it.”

—John J. Yeo, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
