The Atonement and Covenant Theology, Part 1

Join us for the first part of a two part discussion of the atonement and covenant theology. The group discusses the nature of the atonement and its natural and even necessary fit within covenant theology. Christ, as the second Adam, represents his elect and atones for their sins which were committed under the first covenant.
