Not so: that Christians are under ‘a better covenant’, established upon better promises; that although ‘the law made nothing perfect’, made none perfect either in holiness or happiness, yet ‘the bringing in of a better hope did, by which we’ now ‘draw nigh unto God’—this is the great truth continually inculcated herein, and running through this whole Epistle.
