J. I. Packer and C. H. Spurgeon on Covenant Theology:
“What is Covenant theology? The straightforward, if provocative answer to that question is that it is what is nowadays called a hermeneutic…A successful hermeneutic is a consistent interpretation procedure yielding a consistent understanding of Scripture that in turn confirms the proprietary of the procedure itself. Covenant theology is a case in point. It is a hermeneutic that forces itself upon every thoughtful Bible reader…” (James I. Packer)
“The doctrine of the covenant lies at the root of all true theology. It has been said that he who well understands the distinction between the covenant of works and the covenant of grace, is a master of divinity…He also said If anyone should ask me what I mean by a Calvinist, ‘I should reply, ‘He is one who says, Salvation is of the Lord.'” (Charles H. Spurgeon).
