Chapter Summary

This chapter introduces two quotations and provides some additional analysis of Calvin's notion of the prophet and his prophetic awareness. It covers the sense which Calvin seems to have had of what a prophet is (i.e. of the prophetic office), and examines three particular objections which might be raised in relation to this reading of Calvin. The chapter considers the character of Calvin's work as a prophet, particularly as that work was pursued in the 1550s and 1560s until his death. It also examines a topic already treated by Ganoczy, Peter, Stauffer, Millet, Engammare and others by, first, looking at the basic understanding which Calvin possessed of what a prophet is and of the relationship which the prophet bears to the church.
