    I have a few questions in regard to the wording of the first section. 1) How did the Divines use the term "as a covenant of works"? Specifically, the "as a" portion. 2) When they wrote "God gave to Adam a law, as a covenant of works", did they put the covenant as being subordinate to the Law? Or was the covenant a result of the Law? or is the Law given to Adam "in the form of" a covenant?

    This might be helpful.
    Fisher’s Catechism has loads of questions (44) on the CoW based on Shorter Catechism question 12 below

    QUESTION 12. What special act of providence did God exercise towards man, in the estate wherein he was created?
    ANSWER: When God had created man, he entered into a covenant of life with him, upon condition of perfect obedience; forbidding him to eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, upon the pain of death.
