“…the reason why he made the promise was none other than because of blessedness could not come to us, however much we toiled and sweated, while the fall of the first parent had not been atoned for. But when Christ, slain for us, appeased the divine justice and become the only approach to God, God entered into a new covenant with the human race, not new in the sense that he had only just discovered this remedy, but because he applied it at the right moment, having prepared it long before.”

– Huldrych Zwingli (1484–1531), Exposition and Basis of the Conclusions or Articles Published by Huldrych Zwingli, 2:224.
