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 as enacted in history, and the hearts of God's people as formed by history. What emerges is a picture of Christ as the Mediator of God's covenant through his threefold role of priest, king and prophet.ContentsPreface page ixAcknowledgments xiiIntroduction 1The outline of this book 71 Christ as Mediator 14Stancaro and the traditional doctrine of the Mediator 16Calvin's response to Stancaro 282 Christ and the covenant history 40The covenant history 49Christ in history 69The Gospel history 793 Christ as priest 89The sacerdotal office in the Gospel commentaries 91Christ's sacerdotal office in the Institutes 954 Christ as king 115Christ's royal office in the Gospel commentaries 118Christ's royal office in the Institutes 131The eternity of Christ's kingdom 143Christology in the Institutes 1515 Christ as prophet 154Christ's prophetic office in the Gospel commentaries 155Christ's prophetic office in the Institutes 160Christ as the object of faith 1706 The person of the Mediator 182Calvin's use of persona 186Testimony to Christ's persona in Calvin's commentaries 193"Hope that God might dwell with us" 201Conclusion 220Bibliography 237Index
