Outline for “Culture in Biblical Perspective”

III. THE SECOND ADAM: HIS COSMIC CULTURAL WORKS

Cultural implications of covenant of grace (Gen. 3:15f).   The Second Adam, by His perfect obedience to the covenant of works for those for whom He so worked, graciously enables them to unfold it by way of their sanctification out of gratitude to Him for His justificatory work for them (Rom. 16:20 & Eph. 2:8-10 and WCF 7:1-6 & 16:1-7 & 19:1-7).   The Divine Logos and the human logos.   Christ enlightens the Cainites (Calvin’s Comm on John 1:4-5 & 8:12 & Inst. II:2:12 cf. Comm. on Gen. 4:20).   Christ the ark of the nature-culture covenant (I Pet. 3:18-22).
