Trinitarian Covenant and Adamic Covenant

Ralph Smith in his Eternal Covenant: How the Trinity Reshapes Covenant Theology, asserts that many within the Reformed camp give primacy to the Adamic Covenant over the Trinitarian Covenant:

What is remarkable is that the covenant with Adam, though in conception lower and in time later than the covenant between Father and the Son, tends to be the paradigmatic covenant (11).

According to Smith, the Trinitarian Covenant is relevant to “the whole modern discussion of the Trinity.” How do the Persons relate to One Another? How does this covenant apply then to the relationships between image-bearers? Great questions to ponder as we approach Trinity Sunday.
