The Economy of the Covenants between God and Man is considered Witsius’ most significant work. In a reflection on what is known as covenant theology, Witsius examines how the idea of covenant provides a unified theological framework for the Scriptures. He provides an overview of covenantal doctrine, examining its nature, stipulations, curses, and blessings, and contrasts the Old Testament covenant of works with the New Testament covenant of grace. Witsius discusses at length how Christ’s sacrifice satisfied the Law’s demands and opened the door for grace.
