Welcome

Dave Roth, AuthorIt is my pleasure to once again welcome you to The Seeker's Network. If you have been a regular visitor to our web page, you will have noticed that it has drastically changed. Our web host had a server problem and lost all of our content along with the backups. This means that I will have to begin from scratch. I originally had over 3,000 daily bible studies for you to use. This was more than ten years of work, so it will take some time to restore them. I then had problems with the renewal of my domain name and this site has been off line for over a month. I pray the Lord will now help us to continue this work without any further interruptions.

My intentions are for this site to be a blessing for anyone who is seeking knowledge, whether you are a novice to the Christian faith or a teacher, pastor, evangelist or just a serious student. I am now posting daily bible studies again and rebuilding our bible study library along with daily devotions and other content, so please check back every day and enjoy our studies..

The books of Matthew, Colossians, 1 & 2 Corinthians and Genesis are now complete. There are nearly 1000 daily studies posted. I am working on restoring the Exodus studies and our daily study on Leviticus will appear Mondays thru Fridays, except on holidays.

Thank you and may God bless you for your interest, understanding and patience with the previous inconvenience.

Dave Roth
Author, Web master, and Pastor

The Covenant of Salt

Leviticus 2:13

13 And every oblation of thy meat offering shalt thou season with salt; neither shalt thou suffer the salt of the covenant of thy God to be lacking from thy meat offering: with all thine offerings thou shalt offer salt.


No offering was ever to be made without the "salt of the covenant." Salt is a preservative, a sanitizer and a seasoning. It was very important to the people of the middle east for preserving food and is the exact opposite of wheat or honey which promote fermentation. Salt became the symbol of an everlasting and pure friendship or covenant.

The Expositor's Bible, Vol. 1, p. 255, Eerdmans, 1943, states that, "Among the Arabs of today, for example, when a compact or covenant is made between different parties, it is the custom that each eat of salt, which is passed around on the blade of a sword; by which act they regard themselves as bound to be true, each to the other, even at the peril of life. In like manner, in India and other Eastern countries, the usual word for perfidy and breach of faith is, literally, "unfaithfulness to the salt;" and a man will say, "Can you distrust me? Have I not eaten of your salt?"

God's covenants are covenants of salt, incorruptible and everlasting. God's covenant with David is one O.T. example. (See 2 Chronicles 13:5) Therefore the everlasting nature of His covenant relationship with the believer had to be represented by salting every offering.    Read More
