In episode 14, Lee and Chris discuss chapter 2 of Meredith Kline’s book, By Oath Consigned.  In Chapter 2, Kline is still laying the theological foundation for his analysis of the sacraments of circumcision and baptism.  This chapter is called “Law Covenant,” and it gives the reader some significant insight into some theological themes that remained near and dear to Kline’s heart throughout his entire academic career.

Only one week into our new series where we work through By Oath Consigned, and we’re already taking a break – but we think you’ll understand why.  We are excited to have the opportunity to interview Jonathan Kline about his grandfather’s commentary – Genesis: A New Commentary – which was just recently published by Hendrickson Publishers.  He has insight into this commentary that no one else will have.  Also – notice how easy it is for him to rattle off the Hebrew – almost as if it were his first language.  That definitely seems to be a trait of the Klines.  Have a listen, and be sure to get a copy of the commentary as well as all of the other exciting resources listed in the show notes!

In this episode, Chris and Lee trace the revelation of the covenant of common grace from Genesis to the New Testament.  Family, state and culture are covered as institutions belonging to this period of the delay of final judgment.  Listen to find out why this particular covenant is so important to you, how you understand the world, and how you relate to unbelievers.  See if you can catch the reference to the republication controversy!
