In Reformed theology we speak of three covenants, the pre-temporal covenant of redemption, the covenant of works, and the covenant of grace. In the covenant of redemption there are two aspects, works for the Son and grace for the elect. The Son was placed under and voluntarily accepted conditions that he had to meet, for us. The benefits he earned for us, in fulfillment of the covenant of redemption come to us graciously, freely, through faith alone, in Christ alone. Both aspects of the covenant of redemption are reflected in the history of salvation, in the covenants of works and grace. In this episode we look at the difference between the covenants of works and grace, where and how conditions do and do not operate in the covenant of grace.
