In this stimulating work Stephen
Charnock links the Old and New Testaments with this classic explanation of how
the sacrifice of Jesus Christ fulfils the Old Testament sacrificial system. He
particularly illustrates the importance of the Passover, and opens up our
understanding of the differences which characterize the New Testament Church era. He shows that
Jesus willingly submitted to the pain he knew he would go through, in order to
bring us the blessings of a new covenant with God.
The Puritans were brought up on the
Bible; for a Puritan mind a clear text from the Bible settled all controversy.
It is this discipline and clear sightedness which makes their work so valuable
to today’s generation.
