The subject of the covenants raises many opinions as to what is meant by the terms “old” and “new” covenant. Many believe that the two covenants represent two different dispensations or eras of the Gospel which are separated by the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Believers prior to the cross are considered to be “under law”, while believers after the cross are “under grace.” This tract aims to provide a biblical introduction into a different understanding of the covenants – as a personal experience in our Christian walk, with an Old Covenant experience leading into a New Covenant experience. The aim is to show that the gospel is “everlasting”, “for unto us [after the cross] was the gospel preached as well as unto them [prior to the cross]” (Heb 4:2).
