The Sinai covenant was conceived to be a type of “suzerain treaty” establishing YHVH as king and Israel as the vassal. Why was it necessary for YHVH to create another covenant with Israel? He already had a covenant with their forefathers. The Sabbath is to serve as the reminder of this covenant. Why would YHVH specifically choose the Sabbath as the sign?
