Approach: Reading passages from the Old and New Testaments to learn about the essential reasons for confession.

Hermeneutic objective: Observing the literary beauty of the consistency of God's word between the Old and New Testaments.

Theological objective: Confessing one's sin acknowledges one's failure to live by God's standard and acknowledges the only One who could forgive - the Lawgiver.

When under the Old Covenant, those who didn't confess and placed their faith in God were not acknowledged as His people and did not receive the blessing promised to Abraham.

When under the New Covenant, those who don't confess and place their faith in Jesus, God is Salvation, do not have Jesus to acknowledge their faith for forgiveness from His Father and the recognition as God's people who inherit the blessing promised to the descendants of Abraham.
