W. P. Stephens

Oxford University Press

The changed understanding that Zwingli had of Christ led to his changed understanding of the church. At the first disputation in January 1953, the articles on the church came immediately after those on Christ. It was described and defined in terms of him. He maintained his view against Catholic opponents. Months later, he was challenged by some of his more radical supporters in his understanding of the church. Meanwhile, the development of the prophecy in June 1525 shaped a distinctively Reformed model of ministry in opposition to that of both Catholic and Anabaptist. It emphasized the preaching of the word and the scriptures as the criterion of the Spirit.
