Stephen Edmondson articulates a coherent Christology from Calvin's commentaries and his Institutes. He argues that, in the course of the medium of Scripture's background, Calvin, the biblical humanist, renders a Christology that seeks to seize either the breadth of God's multifaceted grace as enacted in heritage, and the hearts of God's humans as shaped through background. What emerges is an image of Christ because the Mediator of God's covenant via his threefold position of priest, king and prophet.
