2e717a6e21611a7c3aaad56d906f009c

What are the differences between this paragraph and those found in chapter 7? What does the Confession mean by “communicated to the elect”? What is the virtue of redemption? What is the efficacy of redemption? What are the benefits of redemption? Why does the Confession say “slain from the foundation of the world”? What’s the difference between this paragraph and the London Baptist Confession of 1689? What role does Biblical Theology have in the Confess? Join Joel, Nathan, Shawn and Kyle as we discuss these questions from WCF 8.6:

Although the work of redemption was not actually wrought by Christ till after His incarnation, yet the virtue, efficacy, and benefits thereof were communicated unto the elect, in all ages successively from the beginning of the world, in and by those promises, types, and sacrifices, wherein He was revealed, and signified to be the seed of the woman which should bruise the serpent’s head; and the Lamb slain from the beginning of the world; being yesterday and today the same, and forever.
