Beschreibung:

Stephen Edmondson articulates a coherent Christology from Calvin's commentaries and his Institutes. He argues that, through the medium of Scripture's history, Calvin, the biblical humanist, renders a Christology that seeks to capture both the breadth of God's multifaceted grace enacted in history, and the hearts of God's people formed by history. What emerges is a picture of Christ as the Mediator of God's covenant through his threefold office of priest, king and prophet. With Christ's work as the pivot on which Calvin's Christology turns, Christ's person becomes the goal to which it drives: for Christ mediates our union with God only through union with himself. This is the first significant volume to explore Calvin's Christology in several decades. It clarifies an important but perplexing subject in Calvin studies through its focus on Christ's work in history and allows Calvin a voice in the current theological conversation about Christology.
