John Calvin's Ideas

Paul Helm

Oxford University Press

This Chapter—on Calvin's Christology—continues some of the themes of Ch. 2. Calvin's Christology is essentially Chalcedonian. He emphasizes the Son's undiminished deity in the Incarnation. The relation between the Son of God and the Incarnation is considered, and what Calvin means by the communicatio idiomatum is discussed. The ways in which dogma is meant to regulate our understanding of Scripture rather than to explain mysteries is further explored.

Keywords:   Chalcedon, Christ, Christology, communicatio idiomatum, extra calvinisticum
