The covenant of redemption is pretemporal, intratrinitarian, and foundational with reference to God’s dealings with his elect. It is referred to in the 2nd London Confession of Faith 1677/1689 (2LCF) 7:3 as “that eternal covenant transaction that was between the Father and the Son about the redemption of the elect” and 2LCF 8:1 further explains “It pleased God, in his eternal purpose, to choose and ordain the Lord Jesus, his only begotten Son, according to the covenant made between both, to be the mediator between God and man.” Click to read more about ” The Covenant of Redemption”

The Christian Gospel is a message regarding God, man, and the Mediator between the two, the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible says that God is “of purer eyes than to behold evil, and cannot look on wickedness” (Hab 1:13).
This is bad news for man as the Bible says concerning everyone: “There is none righteous, no not one; there is one who understands; there is none who weeks after God. They have all turned aside; They have together become unprofitable; there is none who does good, no not one” (Rom 3:10-12). Click to read more about “The Gospel of Jesus Christ”
Who is Jesus Christ?
Who does the Bible say that He is?
