Leaving aside the historical concepts that inform the structure and pattern of the covenant in terms of the Hittite Suzerainty Treaties (background materials from the era), the clear message throughout the Old Testament is upon a handful of themes and they intertwine with the concept and the action of love on the part of both God and humans, specifically Israel.
The season of Lent leads up to Easter in churches that observe an ecclesiastical calendar. Lutherans, Episcopalians, Roman Catholics and Orthodox Christians follow an ecclesiastical calendar; that is, they follow a set sequence of festivals throughout the year, which begins on a different day from the civil calendar’s new year. The main seasons in the ecclesiastical year are Advent, Christmas-Epiphany, Lent, Eastertide, and Pentecost.
