Chapter Summary

This chapter compares the Law and the Gospel in the bilingual edition of the Synopsis Purioris Theologiae regarding their similarities and dissimilarities, or differences. When the sense is literal, the word "Old Testament" stands for the Law, insofar as it was given to the Jewish people through Moses. Placed opposite to this is the "New Testament", the teaching of spiritual grace and salvation fully revealed by the Son of God himself from the bosom of the Father and spread abroad by the apostles' preaching. It promises righteousness without price, and life everlasting through and for the sake of Christ the testator unto all who believe in him through the grace that he will lavish on them abundantly. In this sense the Old and New Testaments are different not only in some circumstantial qualities and contingencies, but also in essence, and "there are two Testaments".
