sermon notes on The Covenant of Redemption

The Covenant of Redemption (1) #22 Several weeks ago, I asked the question: Why is the new covenant necessary? The answer is because none of the covenants prior to it actually secured the salvation of sinners. The new covenant is necessary because the covenant with David, the covenant with Israel or the Mosaic covenant, the covenant with Abraham, and the covenant with Noah, though they point to our Lord and  [ Read More ]

some thoughts on Genesis 3:15 – four major views

God’s remedy for Adam’s failure

Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God become man, is God’s remedy for Adam’s failure. Jesus Christ takes His seed where Adam failed to take his. Salvation in Christ is better than creation in the image of God and citizenship in the garden of Eden.
