    The words have similar meanings but the word contract is usually  used to describe  human commercial commitments while the word covenant is frequently used in the Bible to describe God and Jesus' spiritual commitments to people as this verse indicates:

    Galatians 3:17 (New International Version, ©2010)

    What I mean is this: The law, introduced 430 years later, does not set aside the covenant previously established by God and thus do away with the promise.

    Contracts tend to be more specific than covenants.  Covenants typically define important relationships between people and their communities or the divine.  To use a non-religious example, we talk about neighborhood covenants which govern what people can and can't do according to the neighborhood association . . . but contracts between individual homeowners and their builders.
