Part 5 - Resting by Faith
Overview: The Blood of the Covenant: Fully and Uniquely Efficacious
The foundation for a rest in Jesus Christ is His completed work of redemption. There are two key aspects to this work which complement one another: it is fully efficacious in atoning for sin and it is uniquely efficacious in atoning for sin. The issue of sin is that which excludes any way other than Jesus Christ to reach God and gain eternal life. "According to the law," without a blood sacrifice sin cannot be remitted. However the old covenant sacrifices did not take away sin but only covered it. Jesus came as the true sacrifice that indeed does take away sin, and this according to a new covenant.
