How does our covenant theology help inform the continuity and discontinuity between the Old and New Testaments? How are the Old Testament sacraments the same in “substance” and what does that mean? Can you give some examples of Old Testament sacraments and show how they were instituted by God and signified and sealed Jesus Christ and his benefits to the believer? Do we see the work of the Spirit making effectual the sacraments of the Old Testament? What are the differences between Old and New Testament sacraments? Tune in as Nathan, Shawn, Joel, and Kyle discuss WCF 27.5:
The sacraments of the Old Testament, in regard of the spiritual things thereby signified and exhibited, were, for substance, the same with those of the New.
