(p.125) Conclusion
The Judaizing Calvin

G. Sujin Pak

Oxford University Press

The conclusion begins by exploring the suggestions that this study raises concerning the role of biblical exegesis in the emergence and formation of separate Protestant confessional identities. The heart of the conclusion analyzes Calvin's place in the history of Christian exegesis and argues that Calvin represents another significant shift in Christian understandings of the “literal sense” of Scripture. The author contends that while Calvin remains squarely in the precritical tradition of exegesis—and thus is not the father of modern exegesis that some have made him out to be—he does exhibit exegetical emphases and principles that are later taken up by modern interpreters in different contexts and directions.
