We are pleased to have Rev. Dr. Brian Lee with us this week.  Brian has researched and written about Johannes Cocceius.  We had a great time talking to him about Cocceius’s covenant theology, the similarities and differences with Meredith Kline’s covenant theology, and what it all means for pastoral ministry.

The Doctrine of the Covenant and Testament of God by Johannes Cocceius

5 Abrogations:

  1. Man’s sin made the covenant of works worthless
  2. The covenant of grace is announced
  3. The actual arrival of Christ and the announcement of the New Covenant
  4. Our daily struggle with sin is ended by the death of our body
  5. The resurrection of the body brings us into a new relationship with God
