Chapter Summary

Like all Reformers, Bullinger can be characterized as a "Pauline" theologian. However, a closer look at the way how he makes reference to Paul reveals several particular characteristics shaping his interpretation of Pauline texts, nevertheless against a background of important common insights which Bullinger shares with all protestant reformers of the first two generations. It also demonstrates that Bullinger is far from being a naïve Biblicist while at the same time tries to take the Christological message of the Bible as serious as possible. As a consequence, Bullinger sometimes does not bother too much with exegetical details. As texts of the elected "Apostle of the gentiles", the Pauline letters have a particular authority which nevertheless must be considered within the context of the whole Bible.

Keywords: Apostle of the gentiles; Christological message; Heinrich Bullinger; Paul; reformed theologians
