Thomas Goodwin (1600-1679) on the Trinitarian nature of the pactum salutis

Image

In this short excerpt, Thomas Goodwin exemplifies the Trinitarian nature of the pactum salutis, or covenant of redemption:

I will chuse him to Life, saith the Father, but he will fall, and so fall short of what my Love designed to him: but I will redeem him, says the Son, out of that lost Estate: but yet being fallen he will refuse that grace, and the offers of it, and despise it, therefore I will Sanctify him, said the Holy Ghost, and overcome his unrighteousness, and cause him to accept it.

– Thomas Goodwin (1600-1679), Works, 3:19
