Genesis 3:15, Ancient Promise

Thomas Boston notes in Edward Fisher’s gem The Marrow of Modern Divinity:

The ancient promise given to Adam was the first gospel, the covenant of grace; for man, by his fall, ‘having made himself incapable of life by the covenant of works, the Lord was pleased to make a second, commonly called the covenant of grace’ (Gen. 3:15; WCF 7:3).  (69)
