(p.175) 6 The Authentication of Scripture
Faith, Reason, and Revelation in Theodore Beza (1519–1605)

Jeffrey Mallinson

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the contribution of Theodore Beza to the authentication of the Holy Scripture. Beza contributed to the issue with an objective approach, rejecting both hard evidentialism and rationalistic evidentialism. He did not defend each divine mystery in the Scripture but suggested that those holy mysteries are not comprehensible by human reason because they are works of faith and not by human ratiocination. Beza also denies that a belief system can be considered Christian if its doctrines can be comprehended by pure reason.

Keywords:   rationalistic evidentialism, Holy Scripture, holy mysteries, faith, human reason
