Auburn Avenue Hubbub (AAH) Cool Quote #9

“His covenant with Adam was gracious in character, sovereignly imposed, mutually binding, called for trust and submission on Adam’s part, and carried sanctions (blessings or curse). When Adam fell into sin, God mercifully re-established a covenantal relationship with him, one in which the gracious and promissory character of the covenant was accentuated even further — in the promise of a coming Savior, a promise which is progressively unfolded and elaborated upon throughout the Old Testament.”
