Calvin's Doctrine of Biblical Authority
Calvin's Doctrine of Biblical Authority0 0 5 Scritto da: Abd-el-Masih Istafanous
In the 1539 edition of the Institutes, and in all subsequent editions, John Calvin presented justification and sanctification as the twofold grace of God. He repeatedly taught this concept in all of his commentaries, sermons, and other writings. More than any other reformer, Calvin used the twofold grace to express the full relationship between justification and sanctification. In the definitive edition of the Institutes (1559), Calvin introduced the concept of the twofold knowledge of God. This framework has been considered by many as the ordering principle of the Institutes and all of Calvin's theology.
Istafanous argues that the twofold Grace inspired Calvin to introduce the concept of the twofold knowledge in 1559. Thus, the twofold grace of God provides the key to understanding the twofold knowledge specifically and Calvin's theology generally.
