What is a covenant? What are the parts of a covenant? Where in Scripture would you go to understand the covenant of works? Why is it called a covenant of “works”? Was the covenant of works a gracious covenant? Do we have any idea how long Adam continued before breaking the covenant? How does the covenant of works relate to humanity today? Tune in as Nathan, Joel, Shawn, and Kyle discuss these questions and more from WCF 7.2:
The first covenant made with man was a covenant of works, wherein life was promised to Adam; and in him to his posterity, upon condition of perfect and personal obedience.

One thought on “Episode 7.2: The Covenant of Works”
Good discussion brothers. A great introductory discussion that touches on some of the basic exegetical, theological, and practical issues relating tot he covenant of works. I would also highly recommend James Henley Thornwell’s treatment of the covenant of works in the first volume of his collected works.
Thanks very much for all your hard work and faithfulness!
