John Stott on the Victories of Christ

…[F]our tyrannies characterize the old “aeon” (age) that was inaugurated by Adam. In it the law enslaves, the flesh dominates, the world beguiles and death reigns. The new “aeon,” however, which was inaugurated by Christ, is characterized by grace not law, the Spirit not the flesh, the will of God not the fashions of the world, and abundant life not death. This is the victory of Christ into which he allows us to enter.
