Although Calvin was once a covenant theologian, he firmly maintained the evangelical contrast among legislation and gospel, in particular in his exposition of justification by way of religion on my own (sola fide) and salvation by way of grace by myself (sola gratia) with a balanced emphasis of believers' covenantal obedience. furthermore, we are going to discover that Calvin not just utilized the excellence among legislation and gospel to soteriology but additionally within the depiction of redemptive historical past. In Calvin, the excellence among legislation and gospel was once foundational for the depiction of biblical imaginative and prescient of eschatology within the backyard of Eden sooner than the autumn and less than the previous Covenant.
However, the exponents of the Federal imaginative and prescient deny any validity of the excellence among legislation and gospel in hermeneutics, theology, and perform whereas they determine themselves with these of Calvin. In that feel, we may well establish the Federal imaginative and prescient now not with the Protestant Reformation and Calvin yet as constant monocovenantalism during which they deny the excellence among legislations and gospel and practice that monocovenantal precept always to their understandings of hermeneutics, soteriology, the doctrine of double predestination, and sacramental theology.
