With The Guilt, Grace, Gratitude Podcast On The Covenant Of Redemption

Late last month I had the pleasure of talking with Pete and Nick from the Guilt, Grace, Gratitude podcast about the covenant of redemption. This is an important, if neglected, aspect of Reformed theology. From all eternity the Father, Son, and Spirit loved a people. The Father gave that people to the Son and he freely agreed to be their representative. Believer, you have been loved in Christ from all eternity and the Holy Trinity made a covenant to secure your redemption. This is a glorious truth and it was a joy to discuss it with Peter and Nick. If you want to know more about this topic check out the resources below where there are more articles and podcasts on this topic. You might also see the chapter, co-written with David Van Drunen, “The Covenant Before the Covenants” in Covenant, Justification, and Pastoral Ministry (2008). Sadly, this volume is out of print. It is still available as an e-book from Apple and the HRA is discussing ways to make this material available again, even if it means publishing it on the HB. You might also check out John Fesko’s books on the covenant of redemption, The Covenant of Redemption: Origins, Development, and Reception. Reformed Historical Theology, Volume 35 (Göttingen Germany: Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht, 2016), which is an academic volume and The Trinity and the Covenant of Redemption (Fearn, Ross-Shire, UK: Mentor, 2016), which is more popular.

Here is the interview on the Guilt, Grace, Gratitude site and below is the Heidelmedia archive of the interview. As always, if you miss an interview check the Heidelmedia page.
