New Testament

"(Luke 22:20), rather "New Covenant," in contrast to the old" "covenant of works, which is superseded. "The covenant of grace" is called new; it succeeds to the old broken covenant of works. "It is ever fresh, flourishing, and excellent; and under the" "gospel it is dispensed in a more clear, spiritual, extensive," "and powerful manner than of old" (Brown of Haddington). Hence is" derived the name given to the latter portion of the Bible. (See [438]TESTAMENT.)
