Episode 7.5: The Covenant of Grace in the Old Testament

blogFurniture_of_the_Tabernacle

What is the difference between law and grace? What is the difference between Dispensationalism and Covenant Theology in understanding the Old Testament? What are some of the promises, pictures, and prophecies Israel received about Jesus? How were the “shadowy” things of the Old Testament sufficient unto salvation? Tune in as Joel, Nathan, Shawn, and Kyle discuss these questions and more from WCF 7.5:

This covenant was differently administered in the time of the law, and in the time of the Gospel: under the law it was administered by promises, prophecies, sacrifices, circumcision, the paschal lamb, and other types and ordinances delivered to the people of the Jews, all foresignifying Christ to come; which were, for that time, sufficient and efficacious, through the operation of the Spirit, to instruct and build up the elect in faith in the promised Messiah, by whom they had full remission of sins, and eternal salvation; and is called the Old Testament.
