The Sacrament comes from the Latin word “Sacramentum” meaning “Oath”; in Hebrew “Shavua”. Shavua literally means “to seven oneself.” In the Sacraments, we swear and make a Covenant with God. Christ instituted seven of these “sacramentum.” So, Christ instituted seven covenant-making, and covenant-renewing, oaths.
