Calvin's Institutes. Book II, Chapter 10

This is the post #29 of the Calvin's Institutes summary series.

In this chapter, Calvin refutes the opinion that God's covenant with people in the Old Testament was different from that of the New Testament. Calvin is essentially saying that both in the OT and NT, it is by being united with Christ by faith that anyone could be saved and indeed God's elect were saved. The patriarchs and other ancient figures are given as examples how they looked forward to the spiritual salvation not just the earthly kingdom and they were saved by God when they put their trust in God's promises.
