Details

This is the first volume of what is considered to be Witsius’ most significant work. Ascribing to what is known as covenant theology, Witsius lays out the doctrinal value of covenant throughout the Scriptures in The Economy of the Covenants Between God and Man, Vol. 1. He discusses at length the covenant of works in the Old Testament, providing valuable commentary on the significance of the laws. Witsius then presents the covenant of grace as described in the New Testament. He compares and contrasts it with the Old Testament emphasis on works, showing how Christ’s sacrifice satisfied the demands of Old Testament law.
