Covenant Theology: John Murray's and Meredith G. Kline's Response to the Historical Development of Federal Theology in Reformed Thought

Front Cover
University Press of America, 2004 - Religion - 374 pages
In Covenant Theology, author Jeong Koo Jeon makes a much-needed contribution to 21st century biblical and systematic theology. He explores the debate between John Murray and Meredith G. Kline, placing their ideas in the larger context of Biblical studies that have had a direct influence on Reformed theology and evangelicalism. Although the theologies of Murray and Kline contain significant differences, they both maintain a distinction between a covenant of creation and a covenant of grace. In addition, they both advocate a fundamental antithesis between law and gospel, giving a priority to law over gospel in the temporal and logical order of divine works. Jeon sees these distinctions as hermeneutic tools that are essential for better understanding of biblical revelation as well as faith, grace, and atonement.
