The Development of Calvin's Language of ‘Participation in Christ’

(p.68) 3 The Development of Calvin's Language of ‘Participation in Christ’
Calvin, Participation, and the Gift

J. Todd Billings

Oxford University Press

This chapter shows how attention to the development of Calvin's ‘programme’, as carried out in the Institutes and the biblical commentaries, can illuminate the theme of participation in Christ in Calvin's theology. In spite of recent attention in Calvin studies to the development of his thought, there is no current account of how the nexus of themes related to participation fits into Calvin's overall theological development. It is shown in this chapter that the theme of participation receives a great deal of expansion and intensification through the course of Calvin's work.
