5 Jesus said “Abraham rejoiced to see my day” John 8 v 56

6 History of Church From Pentecost

14 Covenant Theology recognises only 2 Covenants in the Bible 1. Covenant of Works(obedience) made with Adam and his posterity 2. Covenant of Grace made with men upon condition of accepting Christ by faith. God had no plan ‘B’. The plan of redemption through Christ was in place from all eternity
