The Covenants-Chapter 3b-2-The Covenant of Eden

And now, what were some of these truths, may we not say great gospel-truths — which holy men of primitive times, learned from the covenant of Eden, and upon which their faith rested?

2. They were further instructed by this covenant, that Messiah was to accomplish the work of redemption through suffering. To Satan Jehovah said, “Thou shalt bruise his heel.” And in all parts of the word of God, but especially in the New Testament, this great truth is perpetually kept before our eyes. “It became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through suffering” (Heb 2:10, 14). And again. “Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day; and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations” (Luke 14:46-47).
