Columns from Tabletalk Magazine, May 2014
The May issue of Tabletalk is out. This issue examines the biblical doctrine of the new covenant. Throughout the Old Testament, we read of God establishing various covenants with Noah, with Abraham, with Israel, and with David. Israel continually violated the terms of the covenant made with them at Sinai, and they were exiled as a result. The prophet Jeremiah looked beyond the time of Israel’s judgment to a time of restoration when God would make a new covenant with His people “not like the covenant that I made with their fathers on the day when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, my covenant that they broke.” This issue of Tabletalk will seek to clarify exactly what is new and different about the new covenant.
Contributors include R.C. Sproul along with Mark Jones, Richard L. Pratt Jr., Guy Prentiss Waters, J. Mark Beach, John W. Tweeddale, R.C. Sproul Jr., Eric J. Alexander, Jared C. Wilson, Aimee Byrd, Joe Carter, and others.
