Episode 7.4: A Testament and Testator

maxresdefault

What is a “testament” and “testator”? Why is it important to retain this language? How does this help us understand the covenant of grace? Why are the benefits of the covenant of grace connected to the death of Jesus? What is the inheritance? Tune in as Nathan, Joel, Shawn, and Kyle discuss these questions and more from WCF 7.4:

This covenant of grace is frequently set forth in scripture by the name of a testament, in reference to the death of Jesus Christ the Testator, and to the everlasting inheritance, with all things belonging to it, therein bequeathed.
