  4. Why does Peter quote from Joel 2? How was Joel 2 fulfilled at the time of Pentecost?
  5. Review the Abrahamic Covenant found in Genesis 12:1-3. What did God promise Abraham? Was this covenant conditional or unconditional? What is the relationship between the Abrahamic Covenant and the Mosaic Covenant (Deuteronomy 28-30)? Davidic Covenant (2 Samuel 7)? The New Covenant (Jeremiah 31:31ff)? How do these covenants tell us the plan of God How is Jesus the ultimate fulfillment of each of these covenants?
