Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the works and passages in which Huldrych Zwingli developed his theology of the ministry. Zwingli used the second disputation organized by the city authorities in October 1524 to offer nearly all ministers from the city of Zurich and the surrounding area a biblical perspective in the execution of their ministry. Zwingli proves that he has great strategic qualities when he realizes the importance of the use of local ministers for the success of the reformation of the church. The biblical sound that colors Der Hirt is not only to be found in the many direct quotations from scripture, but also in its tone. It deals with the ethics and spirituality of the ministry rather than its structures.
