Jesus is the last Adam and Israel's hope and consolation: he is the fulfillment of the law and the prophets Matthew — The Lord proclaims that he will build a house and lineage for David, establishing his kingdom and throne forever. So it remains in force as a binding obligation, but we are incapable of fulfilling it. Of the Law-fear of falling away, and the Gospel faith of persevering, p.

And Turretin is especially important for his Covenant Theology. Covenant Theology is part of the warp and woof of The Westminster Confession. In the seventeenth century, English Calvinism was very much influenced by the use of the covenant concept.

Now the Covenant of Redemption tells you that when Christ dies for you, it makes your salvation absolutely certain. We pray that as we learn from them and that as we learn from your Word, our spiritual lives would be shaped and molded by the truth, that our ability to minister to the people that You have called us to serve would be enhanced by our knowledge of the truth and that we would have an experiential grasp of this truth.
