(p.3) Introduction
The Judaizing Calvin

G. Sujin Pak

Oxford University Press

The introduction begins with a description of the important role biblical interpretation played in the Protestant Reformation. Next it lays out the scope, framework, and thesis of the book by providing a brief description of the individual chapters concerning the history of the interpretation of eight Psalms by the late‐medieval tradition, Luther, Calvin, Bucer, Hunnius, and Pareus. Finally, the introduction addresses the significance of the history of biblical exegesis in Christian‐Jewish relations. It points to the importance of Scripture as a point of contact and polemic between Jews and Christians, such as Christian uses of the Bible to disinherit Jews and Judaism or to foster negative images of Jews and Judaism.
