The Covenant is Cut, the Die is Cast

John Wesley preaching John Wesley preaching at a meeting house in Nottingham, England, in 1747. His hearers are separated by gender which was customary at the time.

I’ll be preaching on Genesis 15.1-12, 17-18 this coming Sunday. My working sermon title is “The Covenant is Cut, the Die is Cast.” Thanks to providence this text is one that plays a central role in the book Justification: God’s Plan & Paul’s Vision by N. T. Wright that my theological reading group is discussing this Wednesday.

Please note that even though the covenant is cut and the die is cast neither the scripture text nor sermon title are set in stone.
