Chapter 7: Of God’s Covenant with Man (V)

V. This covenant was differently administered in the time of the law, and in the time of the Gospel:(a)  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;(b) 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,(c) by whom they had full remission of sins, and eternal salvation; and is called the Old Testament.(d)

(a) 2 Corinthians 3:6-9
(b) Cf. Hebrews 8-10; Romans 4:11; Colossians 2:11, 12; 1 Corinthians 5:7
(c) 1 Corinthians 10:1-4; Hebrews 11:13; John 8:56
(d) Galatians 3:7-9, 14
