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

VI. Under the Gospel, when Christ, the substance,(a) was exhibited, the ordinances in which this covenant is dispensed are the preaching of the Word, and the administration of the sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper:(b)  which, though fewer in number, and administered with more simplicity, and less outward glory, yet, in them, it is held forth in more fullness, evidence, and spiritual efficacy,(c) to all nations, both Jews and Gentiles;(d) and is called the New Testament.(e) There are not therefore two covenants of grace, differing in substance, but one and the same, under various dispensations.(f)

(a) Colossians 2:17
(b) Matthew 28:19, 20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-25
(c) Hebrews 12:22-27; Jeremiah 31:33, 34
(d) Matthew 28:19; Ephesians 2:15-19
(e) Luke 22:20
(f) Galatians 3:14, 16; Acts 15:11; Acts 3:21-23, 30; Psalm 32:1; Romans 4:3, 6, 16, 17, 23, 24; Hebrews 13:8
