Do you really understand the Bible?

Charles Spurgeon wrote, "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.  I am persuaded that most of the mistakes which men make concerning the doctrines of Scripture, are based upon the fundamental errors with regard to the covenant of law and of grace."

Today there is a lack of teaching on the covenant by both mainline and evangelical churches.  Which is why we often find ourselves strangers among our own people. 

With that in mind I recently found this chart that illustrates and helps to show what God has/is doing in the redemptive history of Scripture and the present/future outworking of that redemption by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  I hope this will help you in your search to understand Scripture and if you have any questions feel free to send me a message.
