Heinrich Bullinger was Huldrych Zwingli's successor as the chief pastor in Zurich and a theologian whose Second Helvetic Confession became the most widely adopted confession of faith by Reformed churches in Europe. Bullinger argued that Christian theology was grounded in God's covenant with Abraham and that Jesus Christ could only be understood within the framework of this covenant. He therefore stressed continuity between the Old Testament and the New and opposed any theology, whether Catholic or Anabaptist, that argued for sharp discontinuity.
