In this first of three episodes on God’s law, Jon and Justin talk about the distinction between the law and the gospel. The law and the gospel are both contained in the Old and New Testaments, respectively. The law and the gospel are distinct and ought not be mixed–and, yet, they are complementary in God’s economy of salvation. The guys introduce the listener to this historically Reformed doctrine and consider why it is so important.
Semper Reformanda: Jon and Justin consider how covenant theology and law/gospel distinction complement one another in a Reformed theological framework. The guys talk about how useful these tools are for rightly understanding the Scriptures.
