OT and NT Believers

Only this difference was between them and us, that our redemption by Christ’s death and passion was then only promised, and now it is performed and past. And as their sacraments were figures of his death to come, so be ours figures of the same now past and gone. And yet it was all but one Christ to them and us, who gave life, comfort, and strength to them by his death to come, and giveth the same to us by his death passed.

Thomas Cranmer, Works, I (Cambridge, 1844), p. 60.
